OVERVIEW OF THE CERTIFIED INTERNSHIP PROGRAM (CIP):
The Career Center launched the non-credit Certified Internship Program (CIP) in Fall 2013. The CIP program provides students a framework to enhance knowledge and experience learned in the classroom through their paid or unpaid internship experiences. This program is having a campus-wide (multidisciplinary) impact, as it is accessible by students in all years, all majors, and all departments. While serving primarily undergraduates, it also serves graduate students. The structure and components of the CIP, which are centered on intention, transference, and critical reflection, also serves as a model for credit-bearing internship courses that faculty may choose to use in their own for-credit internship courses.
