DEPARTMENTAL INTERNSHIP COORDINATORS
Each academic department coordinates its interns under the direction of an appointed faculty co-op/internship coordinator. This person is responsible for approving students to seek internships, approving new jobs targeted to students in their department, and assigning faculty supervisors, as well as problem-solving, communicating, monitoring, record-keeping, advising and more.

The best way to get to know the internship program is to look at the information we provide to our students. Even if you’ve been supervising interns for years, it’s worth checking out what we’re sharing with and requiring of our students. The first, required step for every student interested in an internship is to complete the Online Orientation.
