In 2016, the UC Berkeley Labor Center partnered with the ACES Program to offer an expanded version of the highly successful Labor Summer Internship Program which integrated summer internships with Fall independent research courses. During the Summer, students interned at unions and community groups to address issues such as low wage jobs and other economic justice issues.  During the Fall, students developed this work into research projects by continuing the relationship with their community hosts. Students also integrated their internship experience into their academic work, while learning about pedagogies of community engaged scholarship. The students gave presentations at the end of the Fall semester to discuss their research and summer internships.
