After enrolling in one of the COP courses you will be matched with an organization in need of student help. The faculty mentors who lead each COP are either currently working or retired from the field in which they specialize. Their professional experience helps make this internship program more valuable to you as an emerging professional.
Interning under the Communities of Practice model is ideal for students who are taking a first step into work-based learning, or who want to work with multiple community partners and professionals. These programs are open to students of all majors at UVM. Sophomore year standing required except in rare cases.
While much of your work will take place on campus or remotely, you may want or be asked to visit community organizations during the course of your work. If you're concerned about transportation, please reach out to your faculty member!
