The Victor Kuo Internship Program

Victor Kuo championed college access, success, and equity and left a lasting impact in the world. IHEP’s internship program bears the name of our former vice chair of the board of directors to honor his support for students and impact in the field of higher education. Dr. Kuo’s luminous spirit, kindness, and compassion touched those around him as he used his talents to address injustice and to elevate people and important social issues. Through his work – with IHEP and beyond – Dr. Kuo transformed the field of education and evaluation to promote quality, life-changing outcomes for students. He was a true champion for racial and economic justice, particularly for Asian-American and Pacific Islander students. As we do for our team as a whole, we center equity in the recruitment and selection of our interns.
