By serving as the academic sponsor, you are agreeing that you will advise the student during the internship and that the internship provides a worthwhile opportunity for the application of liberal arts learning. Prior to approval of this internship, you and the student will create a list of scholarly sources to frame the internship experience and develop a plan for the academic work that will express the student’s thoughtful reflection on the internship and its connections to their learning. This academic work, which will be presented to you after the internship, will be the basis upon which you will determine whether the student earns credit for the internship. After discussing the experience and on the basis of the student's written work, the Academic Sponsor will submit a recommendation of "credit" or "no credit" to the Center for Careers & Internships.
