2 Slots Open for HECUA’s Inequality in America program
This program is aimed towards students who are interested in studying poverty, inequality, and social change!
In America today, the top 1% earn nearly 25% of the nation’s income. Wealth and income gaps have reached levels not seen since the Great Depression, and are amplified by race. The median household wealth for a white family is $144,000; for Latinxs it is $13,700, and for African Americans, $11,200.
Inequality in America delves into the complex causes and impacts of the gap between the rich and poor in the United States. Students examine the social systems that feed increases in poverty and inequality and study the roles racism, classism, trans- and homophobia, and sexism play in the creation of short-sighted and damaging public policy.
In a concurrent internship with a local nonprofit, students test and expand their change-making skills. Past internship sites have included African Career Education Resource Inc. (ACER), Minnesota Coalition for the Homeless, Centro de Trabajadores Unidos en la Lucha (CTUL), and Take Action MN, among many others. Students meet local organizers, build professional networks, and spend 150 hours on site, working for organizations dedicated to social transformation. Everyone leaves the classroom with increased confidence in their own abilities to effect change, as well as deep understanding of the local nonprofit landscape.
Many employers conduct interviews on campus for full-time and internship positions. Each semester we host local and national organizations of all sizes and sectors. Employers interviewing this fall include: Allstate Insurance, Ameriprise Financial, General Mills, Insight Global, Kohl’s Department Stores, Macy’s Inc., Northwestern Mutual, RSM US, Securian Financial Group, Target Stores & Distribution, Wells Fargo & Company, Willis Towers Watson, and more. Check the ‘Interview on Campus’ section on GoldPASS often as new schedules are added regularly!
