Internship Program

About the Program

The Finance, Operations and Administration Internship Program was launched in the Spring of 2015. The minimum, two quarter commitment offers graduate and undergraduate junior and senior students the opportunity for professional development while working on a project or initiative through the Office of the Vice Chancellor.

Interns will support key campus initiatives by independently researching, analyzing and formulating recommendations to improve campus services and operations, under the direction of the vice chancellor and/or other senior managers of the division. Other campus executives may also serve as project mentors.

Student interns will have the opportunity to gain unique and valuable experiences by working closely with a professional mentor, and by providing significant support the ongoing work of the FOA division.
