What do Husky Neighborhood Interns do?

  • Bring people together & develop community: Interns plan events that help students get to know the people living around them and meet their neighbors.
  • Provide information and resource referral: Interns will help students in the neighborhood know about resources available to address landlord issues, or safety concerns, and let students know about resources both on campus and off campus.
  • Cultivate a student voice: Over 3000 students live in the North of 45th neighborhood. Only those students really know what it’s like to live there, and what students need to be successful academically and personally. Husky Neighborhood Interns act as liaisons between their neighbors and the the University to find solutions to address problems in their neighborhood.
  • Promote civic engagement: As UW students move off campus to the neighborhoods surrounding campus, they have a an opportunity to positively impact their neighborhoods and beyond. Husky Neighborhood Interns plan service projects to help improve the community.
