Provide a position description that accurately describes the internship. In order for the student to receive academic credit, he/she will need to complete an application form which they are responsible for sharing with you. This is an opportunity for you and the student to clearly define the learning goals and job duties for the internship.
The internship should offer the student an experience that enhances his/her academic learning and goals. Hiring a student for data entry, filing, answering phones, or other similar office duties is not appropriate unless balanced with meaningful professional responsibilities.
The intern should have an assigned mentor or supervisor that will oversee the student's performance and offer constructive feedback. This person should provide the student with effective guidance, and make sure that the learning objectives and goals are being met.
Must provide a safe and professional work environment for the intern. The student should be treated with the same level of respect and professionalism as any other company employee. A violation of this rule may result in the termination of the internship at hand, as well as future ties with the university.
