Internships


Our internship program offers experience-based learning to supplement your students' classroom activities.  We collaborate on internship initiatives with you and your academic department to facilitate:

  • A good match between students' interests and practical experience 
  • Relationships with positive mentors and students
  • A tangible sense of accomplishment and positive experience for students
  • Enhanced understanding of classroom material and educational knowledge 
  • Internships may be eligible to receive academic credit

In addition, our internship program, made possible by the Illinois Board of Higher Education, allows us to reimburse employers up to 50 percent of the intern’s salary, per pre-determined guidelines.  This offers students a better chance to obtain an internship where they can: 

  • Connect with highly qualified employers
