Internships

Please use the Center for Personal and Professional Development  as a resource when developing new internship opportunities for your students.  The steps below outline the suggested process for designing and implementing a new internship experience.

Step 1:  Idea

Outline the basic vision for the experience (who, what, where etc.) using the guidelines we provide below to make sure the experience meets the minimum standards and Federal guidelines.  Include all expectations for students, role of the supervising faculty member, site-coordinator etc.

Step 2:  Determine Credit and Designation

Within your department, decide if this experience will be credit-bearing and for how many credits.  If this will be a credit-bearing experience, follow your department’s guidelines for proposing this as a credit-bearing course.  This process is outlined in the faculty handbook.

We also you suggest you submit this experience for PRE course designation so that students can use this to fulfill their PRE graduation requirement.  Read more about this process on WebbConnect in the Student Support folder.

Step 3:  Share your proposal with us.

We’re here to help you throughout this process.  Once you’ve developed your idea and determined credit/designation, email us a draft of your proposal for feedback.  We’ll double check to make sure you’ve included all key components, and offer suggestions for fine-tuning the experience before its officially implemented.

Step 4:  Advertising

Once you’ve finalized all the details of the internship, we’ll post it in our WebbWorks system online to maximize its visibility among our students.  If you’ve not used Webb Works previously, use the link below to learn more.

Step 5:  Follow Up
