Inclusive Internships at SPExS

American University’s School of Professional & Extended Studies creates an inclusive community that values diversity of background, experience, and thought, using Washington, DC, as our learning laboratory. In experiential education, we attract students, faculty, staff, and internship sites from all backgrounds, including historically underrepresented groups.

We believe a diverse community and an inclusive climate are essential for students as we help prepare them to work in the modern world. Contemporary problems require innovative ideas from students, faculty, and professionals who represent backgrounds, cultures, and places reflecting the real-world.
