Lynne Layton Fellows

Beginning in 2019, Dr. Lynne Layton has funded internships allowing Pitt undergraduates to pursue community engagement and research on topics in gender and sexuality studies.

"This internship was probably one of the best and most educational experiences I have had in college so far. I was able to work first hand on human rights issues and met a diverse group of people who all had important information to share to try and help marginalized communities all over Pittsburgh." — Alyssa Rogers-Armstrong
