Student Affairs Graduate Intern Opportunities

The graduate internship prepares students for a wide range of career opportunities in student services at the postsecondary level. This program provides students with an opportunity to develop first hand knowledge of student affairs professions and gain hands-on experience in many areas with the Division of Student Affairs.  Furthermore the Graduate Internship program will afford students the opportunity to analyze the functions of various administrative departments, to examine the relation of departments to each other and to the institution, and to understand contemporary societal issues and their impact from an institutional perspective. Working with experienced student affairs administrators the interns will work to improve the quality of campus life, foster a safe, healthy and respectful environment, support academic achievement and success, and promote leadership and civic engagement.  The interns also participate in University wide projects and professional development opportunities to begin developing a professional network.

Graduate Internships are 10 month positions (early August through May), 35 hours per week. Interns work with various offices within the Division of Student and University Affairs. In some instances summer work may be available. It is anticipated that internships will be offered for 2 consecutive academic years, however, due to funding and performance considerations positions are offered as a single year appointment-subject to renewal and are contingent on an applicant being accepted and maintaining good standing in an appropriate graduate program at SCSU.
