Faculty & Staff Resources

Help your students take their learning beyond the walls of the classroom.

An internship is more than a job – it is a form of experiential learning integrating knowledge and theory learned in the classroom with practical application and skills development in a professional setting.

Through sustained engagement in authentic tasks considered meaningful to the organization, students are able to gain valuable applied experience, make connections in professional fields, and explore intended career paths – all while employers are able to guide and evaluate talent.

Students, employers, faculty, and staff – we’re here for you!

How we can help!

The Office of Internships & Cooperative Programs offers resources and assistance to FGCU faculty overseeing internship initiatives on campus.
