Internships

 

The Indigenous Research and Education Garden hosts internships each year to enrich its programming with in-depth student learning, providing students with the opportunity to gain hands-on experience and conduct their own research. Interns are eligible to receive course credit towards their UBC degree. Interns gain skills and experience in ethnobotany, working with traditional knowledge, medicines, and foods, intergenerational learning, communications, Indigenous research methodologies, and community collaboration. Their research and reflections provide evidence to improve these programs and to make future recommendations regarding student engagement.
