A Guide for Students, Faculty and Site Supervisors

2007-2008 Edition

= A Message from the Dean =

To the Readers of this Manual:

Muhlenberg College is committed to providing students with opportunities for experiential learning, including internships.  An internship can enable a student to translate knowledge gained in an academic setting such as the classroom or research lab into the world of work outside academe.  An internship can also assist the student in gaining first-hand knowledge of the expectations of a particular career field and the etiquette of the workplace. Students who have conscientiously met the responsibilities of an internship have valuable assets to discuss with potential employers or graduate and professional schools.

Whether you are a student, a member of the College faculty or staff, or an on-site supervisor, I hope you find this manual helpful and your role in the internship experience a rewarding one.
