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 in Fall 2019 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.
This study is growing with eight new colleges and universities joining the project in 2020. These new institutions include HBCUs, Hispanic Serving Institutions (HSIs), community colleges, and comprehensive universities in Georgia, North Carolina, Maryland, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Wisconsin and several other states.
