Internships and the Internship MOU
Internships contribute to students' overall academic development and provide a mechanism for students to apply skills and gain work experience prior to graduation. Internships are approved work-based experience that is specific in nature and generally follows completion of foundational didactic coursework. Internship experience can be characterized by independent work in an organization or agency that leads to achievement of measurable student learning outcomes or objectives. An internship generally lasts one or more semesters and may be paid or unpaid. College faculty supervise and evaluate student performance in the internship,
To ensure a good experience for the student and Intership site, LCSC Policy 2.122: Practica and Internships must be adhered to, and the standard Internship Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) must be used. Additional materials may be provided in an addendum to the MOU.
There are two distinct memoranda.
