UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN River Falls
An internship is a carefully monitored work experience in which a student has intentional learning goals that enable him or her to apply their classroom knowledge to the workplace.
Interns typically receive compensation for their contributions.
Internships are part of UWRF's educational program, and are
carefully monitored and evaluated for academic credit. An essential
aspect that distinguishes an internship from a short-term job is that
learning goals and objectives are structured into the experience.
Since internships are coordinated and approved uniquely in each
college at UWRF, we encourage all employers to post their positions in Hire-a-Falcon, an online recruitment system, to which all students have access.
If you would like assistance creating a new internship within your
organization, please contact the internship coordinator within the program of interest:
College of Agriculture, Food and Environmental Sciences
College of Arts and Sciences
College of Business and Economics
College of Education and Professional Studies

- Provide employers and students with information about department expectations for successfully completing an internship.
