Career Services: Internships - Faculty
Faculty members play an invaluable role to a student intern as a connector, resource and advisor during an internship search and experience.
Students who are searching for internships will ask faculty members for advice on professionals to reach out to or open internship opportunities to explore. Faculty members play a key role in communicating open experiential learning opportunities to students, while ensuring that these opportunities are valuable learning experiences.
Faculty members who are serving as an advisor in an internship for credit are involved with monitoring and supervising the intern which is an essential part of the learning experience itself.
Career Services has resources and recommendations regarding internship opportunities and student development below. We encourage faculty to reach out to an internship coordinator for support or call our office at 503 943-7201.
