Jesuit Universities Humanitarian Action Network
JUHAN Student Group
Interested in how you can take action during a humanitarian crisis? The JUHAN student group meets once a month in Canisius 200. JUHAN hosts programs throughout the year focused on humanitarian action and coordinates student responses to humanitarian crises as they occur, such as the 2011 tsunami in Japan and the 2010 earthquake in Haiti. All are welcome to be a part of JUHAN - contact Danielle Corea for more information.

One of JUHAN's goals is to educate undergraduate students in sophisticated and effective responses to humanitarian crises which can help prepare students for professional careers in humanitarian action. Several courses each semester are designated as JUHAN courses, meaning they have a specific focus on humanitarian crises and action. Keep an eye out for JUHAN-designated courses in the course booklet!

Students interested in JUHAN might also have an interest in careers working in government, non-profits, or humanitarian organizations. To help you prepare for such careers, we have compiled a list of JUHAN-related internships offered during the academic year, summers, or post-graduation. Information regarding affordable summer housing options at various universities is included. Summer housing opportunities fill up fast, so the sooner you submit an application to the respective universities, the more likely that you will be accepted.
Please contact Danielle Corea if you would like a copy of this list. If you plan to apply to one or more of these internships, please let us contact the Center so to that we can maintain a current record of student internship involvement as well as provide a supporting connection for you and the agency.
