Center for Community Engagement Internship Opportunities

The Center for Community Engagement not only promotes internships as experiential learning, it is actually an internship site. Students gain experience in a professional office setting, build their portfolio, and expand their network, while working on exciting projects with our crackerjack staff, supervised by Dr. Lana Rakow. Internships are unpaid.

Required skills include strong written and verbal communication skills, willingness to take on responsibility independently, interest in working with campus and community partners, and a professional attitude.
