Information for Faculty & Staff
Faculty and staff play an important role in a student's career education by engaging students in career related conversations, helping students make connections between academic work and career goals, directing students to resources, and connecting student to alumni. The CEO is available to help you and offer you the following links to support you with this important work.

Assist Students with Internships
Internships provide students with opportunities to apply classroom learning to work situations, develop skills, and gain valuable experience. The following information can assist you as you work with students pursuing internships.
Locating an Internship
The CEO provides numerous resources for students seeking internships. We first advise students to be utilizing Goucher Recruit. All students are pre-registered in the system and the postings are updated daily. If they need assistance navigating Goucher Recruit, please direct them to our office drop- in advising hours.
In addition to Goucher Recruit, the CEO offers additional resources here. The CEO is happy to meet with any student to help them develop search strategies that meet their specific needs.
Applying for Academic Credit
In order for students to apply for academic credit, we advise them to follow the steps below:
- Secure an internship and discuss responsibilities and expectations with site supervisor.
- Discuss internship with faculty member in department from which you are seeking credit and request they become the faculty internship sponsor for the internship course. Determine learning outcomes and how to demonstrate achievement of those, in collaboration with this faculty member. It is the faculty internship sponsor's responsibility to decide if the internship warrants academic credit.
- Ensure eligibility to receive credit by meeting with Academic Advisor.
- If applying for credit for an independent international internship, students need to review those policies and secure approval from the Office of International Studies.
If the faculty member supports the internship for credit, then the student should begin the application process by reviewing the Academic Internship Checklist and completing the Internship Learning Agreement (ILA) found here.
By completing the ILA, emails are automatically generated for approval from the Academic Advisor, Faculty Internship Sponsor, Site Supervisor, and the Office of International Studies(if applicable).
For more information about the roles and responsibilities of the above mentioned people, contact our office. We’d be happy to help you in your role as Faculty Internship Sponsor for an academic internship.
Not certain what it means to serve as a Faculty Internship Sponsor for an academic internship? Contact our office, we'd be happy to walk you through it.
What Makes a Quality Internship?
While different employers may have different thoughts and goals about an internship, the CEO puts forth the following criteria for a quality experience:
- A learning experience, not just meeting the needs of the employer
- Skills and knowledge gained can be applied to other settings
- Clearly defined job duties and time frame
- Clearly defined learning outcomes, related to the student’s professional and academic goals
- Routine supervision by a professional with the knowledge and experience to do so
- Resources and facilities to support learning
This criteria was established by the National Association of Colleges and Employers, the professional association to which the CEO is a member.
