INTERNSHIP HANDBOOK

2010-2011


LAST UPDATED: 4/30/2010 7:45PM

 

Check this site often for updates on internships

 

Internships (practica) provide students in the Program in Higher and Postsecondary Education (HPSE) at Teachers College, Columbia University with professionally supervised, consistent and comprehensive exposure to the roles and functions of a wide variety of administrative offices in higher education.

 

Practica are not required by any of the sequences in the HPSE Program, however, if you choose to participate in an internship, your course of study will include one required fieldwork course. Incoming, full-time MA students are given priority in the internship process, however, all incoming students regardless of degree program may participate. While internships are not required for the completion of your program, once you accept an offer to intern for the year, you are obligated and expected to complete your internship under the specifics of the contract you sign with your supervisor (occurs after offers are given). You must apply to at least 6 internships to participate in this program.

 

·      Internships provide students with:

 

·      Opportunities to relate theory to practice and practice to theory;

 

·      Depth to your academic program by providing an environment where classroom concepts can be explored in a practice setting;

 

·      Breadth to your administrative experience through work in a different campus setting than has previously been experienced;

 

·      Practical exposure to administrative and leadership issues, particularly as they relate to entry and mid-level positions;

 

·      Supervision and assessment directed toward identifying and strengthening your skills as a higher education administrator;

 

·      Assistance in clarifying goals within the field of higher education;

 

·      Additional financial resources while attending the program; and

 

·      A challenging learning environment where you can pursue specialized interests such as organizational culture, community relations, student development, academic policy, multicultural awareness, event planning, or program assessment.

 

 

CONCURRENT FIELDWORK SEMINAR

 

All students who are placed in a program-sponsored internship (regardless of academic focus) are required to attend a one-credit fieldwork course, in both the fall and spring semesters. This two-semester course builds and strengthens the link between theories regarding higher education administration and actual work experience at the internship site. The course allows students an opportunity to discuss specific aspects and issues of their internship experience and to gain support, insights, and ideas from peers. Please note: if you fail to enroll for the concurrent seminar for both fall and spring semesters, you will not be eligible to apply for the internships in this booklet. You will register for this course after consultation with an HPSE advisor.

 

 

CONTACTING INTERNSHIP SITES

 

This handbook contains a wide variety of internship opportunities sponsored by the HPSE Program. You should decide which internships would best serve your interests and those that ask for skills and experiences you possess. At the same time, keep in mind that the internship should provide you with a learning experience, so there is value to selecting an internship in an area which you have not previously worked as a way to broaden your skills and experiences. 

 

YOU SHOULD INDICATE IN YOUR COVER LETTER THAT YOU WILL BE ATTENDING THE TEACHERS COLLEGE HIGHER & POSTSECONDARY EDUCATION INTERNSHIP FAIR.

 

 

THE SPRING 2010 INTERNSHIP INTERVIEW PROGRAM

 

NOTE: ONLY STUDENTS WHO HAVE BEEN FULLY ADMITTED INTO THE TEACHERS COLLEGE HIGHER & POSTSECONDARY EDUCATION PROGRAM ARE ELIGIBLE TO PARTICIPATE IN THE INTERNSHIP FAIR.  SUCH STUDENTS WILL RECEIVE INFORMATION ON HOW TO REGISTER FOR THE FAIR FROM THE INTERNSHIP COORDINATOR VIA E-MAIL.

 

You should plan to attend this event and schedule interviews with supervisors from 11am-5pm AT 20-MINUTE INTERVALS (e.g. 11am, 11:20, 11:40, etc.). If you will not be able to attend this event, you will need to make alternate interviewing plans with supervisors, either via phone or in person. To schedule interviews at alternate times, simply make those requests directly to supervisors in your cover letter.

 

With few exceptions, supervisors will be interviewing at the Internship Fair and will not make their final decisions on candidates prior to that date. It is advised that students wait until after that date before accepting any job offer, so that they have a chance to consider all possible sites. After the Internship Program is completed, both supervisors and students will rank their choices of candidates/sites. Rebecca Natow, Internship Coordinator, will work with supervisors to make final placement decisions as quickly as possible. Supervisors will then contact students directly with a job offer. Some sites may not be able to make final offers until budgets have been approved later in the year; those circumstances are identified in the job postings below. Such sites will likely make preliminary offers to students based on funding; however, those offers IN NO WAY guarantee a final offer for a position. 

 

 

HELPFUL INFORMATION

 

Updates: Please be sure to check online at http://www.columbia.edu/~rsn2106/hbook10.htm for updates

 

Seek additional Information: It is important to learn about the realm of higher education. You may decide to talk with current practitioners or consult literature pertaining to the field to determine your interests in higher education. In making your decision, you should also look for internship opportunities that will allow you to obtain new skills as well as build on old ones.

 

Conduct yourself in a professional manner: You should approach the internship interview as you would any job interview.  Prepare for possible questions, update your resume, dress appropriately, and arrive on time.  Remember that all internships are professional positions requiring your dedication and commitment.  Suggested reading: the book “Brag” by Peggy Klaus.

 

Follow up after your interview: After you have completed your interviews, please follow up with a letter of appreciation to your interviewer(s). Make sure internship sites, as well as Rebecca Natow, Internship Coordinator, know how to reach you over the summer.

5. Job Description and Duties (paste in your response below, the box will expand to accommodate your text):

NJ’s community college presidents have undertaken a statewide project to identify new strategic directions for NJ’s 19 community colleges. The project is organized into four work groups that will be examining strategic ideas in the following areas: (1) options to address demands for increased capacity; (2) options to support instructional quality; (3) options to address concerns about the college readiness of high school graduates as well as the effectiveness of current remedial efforts; and (4) options to address what are at least the long-term and most likely permanent reductions in public revenue from traditional sources. Working with the presidents, the interns will provide research and general project support framed by a series of white papers that will be developed over the summer months. The project will be based in the NJ Council of County Colleges, the state organization for NJ’s community colleges. While much of the interns’ work can be accomplished through telecommuting, it is anticipated that interns will make onsite visits to New Jersey to consult with presidents and other campus staff as necessary.
