What do previous interns have to say about the experience?
“As a Higher Education Administration graduate student, I was looking for an opportunity to get my hands dirty in any area possible. With the internship at The University of Akron in the Department of Student Judicial Affairs I was able to do just that. I was not stuck behind a computer screen for ten hours a week; rather I was working and meeting with students about their conduct cases.
I was able to witness the process of hearing boards and work with all of the key players including police, students, faculty, health professionals, witnesses, and victims. With this experience, I feel that not only did I get an experience worth talking about, but I feel that I am much more prepared for my first job because of it. I now have a better understanding of another function in Student Affairs as well as myself. I am more aware of my abilities, challenges that I face, and my interests.
I highly recommend this position to anyone who is interested in delving into the world of conduct. Even if you are not interested in conduct, this opportunity is a great one for many transferrable skills.”
