Promote your opportunities

The Delbridge Career Center connects our students to internships that allow them to further their academic goals and to involve the intern in the work of the host organization while integrating classroom students. 

 Internships may be paid or non-paid, for academic credit or for experience and can vary from the summer or within the academic year. For academic credit, eligible students must be in their junior or senior year and complete a minimum of 120 hours in the experience.  A faculty sponsor will be assigned to the experience and will guide the academic component.

All employer representatives are expected to support Career Center policies in all interactions with students. Of course, the management team welcomes employer feedback and input on those policies at any time.
