I learned from example the type of professional I would like to become and cherish the relationships that were built and remain to this day.

Winter Term is a full-time 8:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday commitment. Interns work with supervisors, attend meetings, work with senior staff members, conduct research, interact with other interns, and work to complete projects.
During the Spring Semester, interns will reflect upon their experiences. Interns will present their projects to appropriate work teams/committees, as determined by their supervisor, and conclude any requirements to receive academic credit. Interns attend the spring Board of Trustees meeting and a farewell breakfast with senior staff members. Interns facilitate and participate in the application and interview process for the following year’s team of interns.
