Would you prefer to play a more curatorial role? We're looking for new members from East Falls and Center City. Editorial committee members must be current Jefferson students and commit to attending two editorial meetings during the Spring 2024 semester. Serving on the editorial committee for Inside Out can be counted as credit for the Asano Humanities & Health Certificate by filling out a club attendance form for each meeting. If interested, please fill out this google form about this curatorial/leadership opportunity.
