The Debate Union offers paid internships for Claremont McKenna College students; there are opportunities for additional unpaid internships for students at any of the institutions of the Claremont consortium. (There may be select opportunities for paid internships for undergraduates not attending CMC; please see John Meany for details.)

Students participate in professional and pre-professional work, including curricular materials production, administrative support for public events and outreach programming, research, database design and management, and speech and debate seminar instruction. Students may negotiate weekly hours or project-based work.

If you are interested in applying for a position with the Debate Union, please contact John Meany, Director of Forensics,
