    Summer Internship Program

    Our annual Enrollment Planning Summer Internship Program partners with local college or university students to participate in one of our major research and planning projects. Each May, up to two undergraduate and graduate student interns join our department. Internship terms are expected to last 10 weeks, however, start and end dates are flexible depending on the schedules of selected applicants.

    The anticipated timeline for the intern selection process is detailed below: 

    Early March: Position opening(s) will be posted, and the department will begin accepting applications
    Mid-April: The posting will close, and the department will begin reviewing applications
    Late April: Interview offers will be extended to chosen applicants
    Early May: Interviews will be conducted
    Mid-May: Internship offers will be sent to the selected applicant(s)
    June: Internship term will begin

    Some possible project areas for future internships include (this is not a comprehensive list):

    • Student Assignment Plan Equity Review
    • Boundary Change Work
    • Engagement Work
