Does your group/community want to develop a media campaign 
aimed at changing our campus culture and social norms 
to prevent sexual violence & harassment (SVSH)? 

Apply for a Social Norms Seed Grant! 

Annual grants of up to $2500 are available to campus groups/communities to develop and evaluate the impact of a media campaign over the course of a year with support from SVSH prevention experts from the PATH to Care Center and the Center for Support and Intervention. 

Social norms are the unwritten rules about how to behave. Most of us usually hold similar, healthy, positive views. However, people are less likely to act on their own values and beliefs if they think their peers hold different norms. This becomes a concern when the majority incorrectly perceive norms based on a hyper-vocal minority. Social norms campaigns use data from your own group/community to communicate the healthy attitudes of the majority, which encourages everyone to increase healthy behavior. Read an overview of the Social Norms Approach here.

Campaigns can be printed materials, videos, social media, events, or any other form of creative communication. They should communicate positive group/community values, norms, or attitudes about preventing SVSH based on existing or newly-collected data.

Please read the grant instructions carefully: Instructions Link

Hello all,

We are excited to inform you that Cal in the Capital is now accepting applications for our summer 2020 intern cohort, which will allow students the opportunity to work and live in Washington, D.C.! Please provide the following information to your students.

Cal in the Capital provides students of all majors with not only the opportunity for gaining high-level, in-demand internships, but also opens the door to a network of over 7,000 Cal alumni in the DC area. The summer of 2019 was an incredible experience for our interns, with a myriad of experiences learning about both personal and professional development. We hope to recreate that experience for the summer 2020 cohort. As Cal in the Capital interns, our cohort was able to secure internships ranging from The Congressional App Challenge to the Peace Corps. Over the summer, while living together at the UC Washington Center, we were able to attend Cal in the Capital organized summer events such as a pool party at the Watergate Hotel, a Pentagon Tour, and a public service project at the Anacostia River. Not only did students make lifelong friendships and memories, but they also made great connections while networking with Cal alumni at the D.C. Alumni Club Annual Picnic, Annual Gala, and CITC founder Dr. McGinnis’ annual barbeque. Each students’ individual experience learning in our nation’s capital becomes invaluable as we all return to the Cal community with new skills and perspectives.

This program provides students with the knowledge, resources, and skills they need for an incredible summer internship; an experience they will remember for a lifetime. We hope to bring everything we’ve learned as cohort members to prepare our next round of interns with everything they need to be successful in one of the most competitive environments. Cal in the Capital prepared us for our summer in D.C. and we aspire to continue that legacy as we lead the program into our 55th cohort of interns next summer. 

Meet us and learn more about the program at one of our upcoming Information Sessions:

9/12 @ 7pm in 218 Eshleman (Public Service Center)
9/26 @ 7pm TBD
10/2 @ 7pm TBD
10/8 @7pm TBD

If you have any questions feel free to reach out to our email or refer to our website for updated information on our director's office hours and upcoming information sessions. We look forward to hearing from you all.
