AshaUSA Mental Health Matters Summer Internship

AshaUSA is a non-profit organization focused on promoting health and harmony in the South Asian community. Based on our research, the community has identified Mental health as one of the areas which has been identified as one of the top priorities.

Acknowledging the mental health symptoms and explaining them to the people who care, will likely bring great relief.

  • Develop a strategic plan (should include short term and long term action plan) for AshaUSA’s mental health initiative in order to have a bigger impact.

Interested in a directed study focused on radical trust and libraries?


The Resilient Communities Project (RCP) at UofM is seeking a student during spring semester who is interested in collaborating with Scott County Libraries to explore the concept of open libraries and radical trust.

Radical trust necessitates a redefinition and redistribution of power and influence. In a traditional library model, the power lies with the staff (in an access-gatekeeping role to the physical space, influencing decisions that affect end-user access). An Open Libraries model would redistribute power and influence over space to users.

Research questions may include: What consequences might occur from redistributing power and influence on the space from the librarians to library users? What conditions are necessary for radical trust in a community? Why might a community resist the concept of radical trust? What undermines social trust in a community? What do libraries do to build (or deter) radical trust? How do you measure social trust in a library?

This is a great opportunity for a student who is interested in collaborating on a real-world, local project. The scope of the project is flexible and will be finalized in conversation with your faculty adviser and the project lead. Reimbursement will be provided for travel expenses to Scott County.

Learn more about Scott County’s Open Self-Serve Library Feasibility Assessment project and contact Sarah at tschi066@umn.edu for more info.
