Information for employers

Every student in the School of Civic and Economic Thought and Leadership is required to complete an internship prior to graduating. Internships provide valuable experiences for our students, giving them the outside-the-classroom learning they need to forge ahead in the 21st century. 

We need employers like you who are interested in providing our students the opportunity to work and learn in your offices. Our students are hard-working, ready to learn and do what it takes to get the job done. In turn, they're looking for opportunities to grow professionally and network with potential employers down the road. We're always looking for new offices to host our students for a semester. When you host a SCETL student, you become a part of their academic learning process.
