Internship Information for Faculty
Faculty sponsors are a critical guide and mentor in a student's internship journey.
An internship is not only an opportunity for students to continue to learn new skills and expertise, it is also an opportunity to put into practice concepts and theories learned in your classroom. Students can continue to learn what it takes to be a successful professional while beginning to make meaningful contributions to the workplace. An internship experience is an important addition to a student's résumé, a step toward achieving career goals and a way to develop a professional network. And as faculty, you are an integral part of this. For more information about the responsibilities of a faculty sponsor, please see the internship information packet.
Did you know that almost 70 percent of internships turn into full time job offers, according to the National Association of Colleges and Employers?
On-campus internships, or Spartan Internships, offer opportunities for students to gain knowledge and experience on potential career paths and professional development while working for a campus department. Spartan Internships are recommended for students seeking work with a higher level of responsibility than traditional Student Work Corps positions. Spartan Internships can be completed for academic credit or as paid positions; the rate of pay for Spartan Internships varies by department.
