Ishra Haq

Advancement Intern

Ishra Haq is a third-year UofT student pursuing a major in Public Policy and a double minor in Political Science and Diaspora and Transnational Studies. Ishra has over two years of experience working at UofT as a tele-fundraising call-center representative and as a research assistant with Professor Joseph Jay Williams. As a Canadian-Bangladeshi, she wishes to empower people of color who come from backgrounds like hers to create equal opportunities. This is why she chose to join the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE), as an intern.

CASE acknowledges that systemic discrimination has long limited opportunities for individuals from diverse backgrounds and aims to increase and diversify the number of professionals in educational advancement to help schools strengthen relationships with an increasingly diverse alumni population.

Ishra says that she is “incredibly humbled to have been chosen for this prestigious internship and looks forward to gaining exposure and experience in the field of Advancement and educational fundraising over the next 12 weeks at DLSPH!”
