Apply for an internship at the Intercultural Center

Explore. Honor. Be.

These three words are central to who we are and what we do in the Cultural Centers at USF.

By beginning with oneself, we are taking responsibility for understanding who we are and the impact we have in the world to be agents of change for social good. While each of us are working on better understanding our own identities, we must honor that others may or may not be deeply reflecting on their own identities as well. Finally, as you continue in your college career to strive towards magis (to be more, greater), you can fully strive to, in the words of Ghandi, “be the change you wish to see in the world.”
