Internship Success

In order to successfully complete an internship in CBE, the following tasks must be completed.

Interns must submit a Progress Report upon completion of 45+ hours of work, and for ever 45 hours completed thereafter.  All progress reports must be submitted via the relevant Canvas Internship 379 course. 

The department chair for your major, or a faculty mentor, will make contact with your employer as necessary. When feasible, he/she (or a designee) will conduct a site visit with you and your supervisor.

At the end of the internship, the employer will submit an Employer Evaluation of your efforts. The evaluation will assess the intern's progress, performance, and contributions to the organization in numerous competencies. The Employer's Internship Evaluation form will be available to share with the supervisor through Canvas. Students are responsible for requesting their evaluation with their supervisor toward the end of the internship experience. 

You will need to complete a final reflective paper (three to five pages, double spaced) summarizing the internship experience. The report should include a description of the organization, the intern's role, an explanation of how the internship related to academic coursework, as well as an outline of the specific goals and learning outcomes you have accomplished. Both content and writing quality will be evaluated. A guideline on what to include in the final report will be provided on Canvas.


A final satisfactory grade will not be turned in until all the requirements of the internship have been successfully completed.
