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 may ask faculty for advice on professional contacts to reach out to or about internship opportunities to explore. Faculty members play a key role in communicating 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 will provide supervision and monitor the intern throughout the duration of the experience which is an essential part of the learning.

The Career Education Center has resources below, many of which come from the National Association for Colleges and Employers (NACE). If you have questions, please contact the Career Education Center at or call 503.943.7201.
