Urban Internships in Higher Education.
Zauderer, Donald G.
This monograph is primarily for faculty members and administrators in colleges and universities, as well as intern directors in noneducational institutions to assist them in formulating judgments about the design and implementation of internship programs. The paper focuses on the objectives of internship programs, role allocation, and issues and problems associated with this form of experimental education. Goals and objectives of internship training are reviewed in relation to the student as primary beneficiary, the university interest in internship programs, and benefits to the host agency. Role allocation concerns, the system of university values and incentives, faculty role, student role, and the host agency. Additional issues discussed included who should participate, where should students intern, compensation practices, and evaluating intern performance. A 40-item bibliography is included. (MJM)
