Internship Awards Reception

Each year the achievements of our outstanding interns, supervisors, and organizations are celebrated at an annual reception hosted by the Career Resource Center. Staff, faculty and the dean of the School of Management attend, along with the colleagues, friends and family of our honorees.

Student winners are selected based upon nominations from supervisors for excellence in their internship performance, as well as quality of academic work as evaluated by staff. Supervisor winners are selected based upon student nominations, quality of supervision offered and evidence of commitment to the student’s learning.
