Academic Internship Program

The Academic Internship Program facilitates opportunities for students to integrate academic theory and ‘real world' practice, explore the relationship between the two, and gain hands-on experience in professional settings. We work with students and with our campus, community, and industry partners to develop and deliver high-impact experiential learning programs that create opportunities for exploration and deep learning.
