Racial Reconciliation Divinity School Intern

The Racial Reconciliation Divinity School Internship follows the local Divinity School academic calendar and is a two semester, renewable internship. Preferably the intern would be a Divinity School student who could commit to being the intern for more than one year. The intern would serve as a liaison between the CBF-NC Racial Reconciliation Team and the Divinity School to raise awareness of racial reconciliation initiatives and issues, plan and lead related programs/activities at the local Divinity School, empower Divinity School students to work towards racial reconciliation on their campuses, and advocate for racial reconciliation in students' communities and churches. Each internship would be unique based on the needs and specific characteristics of the local Divinity School.

Primary Responsibilities include:

  • Attend Saturday orientation/training event prior to beginning internship.

  • Monthly update to CBF-NC Racial Reconciliation Team.
  • Organize one more formal event per semester (Suggested fall event: R R Curriculum).
  • Partner with a CBF-NC Racial Reconciliation Team coach to develop a holistic ministry or program that encourages racial reconciliation and understanding at the local Divinity School.
  • Attend Racial Reconciliation Committee meetings (held bi-monthly) during the academic school year.
  • Keep an internship ministry log.
  • If intern is able to continue for a second year, maintain contact with mentor during the summer.

Possible Opportunities:

  • Set up dialogue groups.
  • Collaborate with existing Diversity/Multicultural groups at each campus.
  • Convene opportunities to publicly discuss and engage in conversations related to race and reconciliation.
  • Be prepared to address reconciliation "issues" or events that arise over the course of the internship.


  • Minimum of 50 hours per semester. (This includes attendance at Saturday training, General Assembly in spring, meetings with students, event planning, etc.)
  • $1,000 per academic year
  • One intern at each of the following Divinity Schools in North Carolina: Campbell, Duke, Gardner Webb, Hood, Shaw, and Wake Forest.
