We currently have a small internship program, with about 60 - 70 students participating each year. We are actively seeking to increase the number of students participating in internships and have implemented many new initiatives, including new course development, target marketing, workshops, classroom promotions, club and student organization presentations, student newspaper media coverage and advertisements to increase student internship participation. Additionally, our faculty are very interested in working with you to promote internship opportunities to students in their classes and programs. We hope this will aid your organization in receiving eligible applicants for internship opportunities.
