Executive Internship Program
The Executive Internship Program was established in 2016 and is designed for juniors and seniors who have an interest in higher education and in understanding executive leadership in a collegiate setting.
As an executive intern, students gain a deeper understanding of higher education leadership while also experiencing it. They engage in strategic discussions, further develop management skills, gain experience in project-based work, and become familiar with and participate in the internal and external workings of JAVĿ¼.
In its first year, the program included positions in the Office of the President, Division of Institutional Advancement, Division of Student Affairs, and the Office of Marketing and Communications. Today, the program has grown to include positions in the Enrollment Management Division, Division of Financial Affairs, Office of the Provost, and Intercollegiate Athletics. The vision of this internship is to continue its growth to give interns the opportunity to explore various careers in higher education.
- Provide student with a better understanding of careers in higher education.
- Give JAVĿ¼ students more internship opportunities with the ease of staying on campus.
- Educate interns about professional development skills to prepare them for their future careers.
The program is supported by Jeff Taylor of Monroe Roadways.
