An internship can be a great way for managers to advance organizational goals while mentoring aspiring professionals. Internships are mutually beneficial. Students inform and add value to your work while you inform and add value to their personal, academic, and professional pursuits.
The internship program, and the Student Affairs Fellows program for those interested in higher education careers, are designed to enrich graduate studies and provide students with opportunities to better connect their academic learning to real-world experience in the education sector. We strongly believe that students should only participate in internships which directly advance their career goals.
