Data Explorer: Internship Study

The college internship study is a mixed-method longitudinal research study conducted by the Center for Research on College-Workforce Transitions (CCWT). This dashboard aims to visualize our online survey results. The surveys were administered between Fall 2018 and Spring 2020 to all students nearing graduation from our four partnering institutions. The survey investigates internship participation by student characteristics, barriers to internship participation, structure and format of internship programs, and students’ perceived internship satisfaction and value to their development.

The complete dataset used in the dashboard includes 13 institutions from Georgia, Maryland, Tennessee, Wisconsin, Texas, and several other states. These institutions include Historically Black Colleges or Universities (HBCU), Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSI), Technical Colleges, and 4-year Public Institutions without additional designations.
