Career & Civic Engagement Center Programming for Students Completing Summer Internships
Career & Civic Engagement Center guides students in maximizing their internship experiences through a series of activities offered by the Beyond Bryn Mawr Summer Internship Program. All College-funded students are required to complete this program. These include:
- a virtual orientation of assignments to submit through Moodle before the start of your internship
- an international internships pre-departure orientation for students (Not applicable for summer of 2021)
- a learning contract with objectives agreed upon with the internship supervisor
- a mid-summer reflection
- a blog post
- a final report and presentation slides
- participation in the culminating event during Family Weekend in October 2021 called Bryn Mawr and Beyond.
Students explore how the skills they develop in their Bryn Mawr courses articulate with their off-campus experiences and prepare them for life after Bryn Mawr.
Personal Development Internship Course
Any Bryn Mawr student can elect to enroll in a 0.5 credit/no-credit Personal Development course that involves all the components listed above as well as selected readings and reflections. For more information on the course and how to register, please contact Katie Krimmel at email@example.com.
Bryn Mawr and Beyond
Students who receive summer funding partake in the culminating event called Bryn Mawr and Beyond. Held each fall, this event provides a forum for funded students to dialogue with the Bryn Mawr community about their summers and present what they’ve learned in a meaningful way. Students reflect on what they did, what they learned about themselves, and how their experiences helped them to refine and discover their interests. Students also share how they develop skills tied to the Career & Civic Engagement Center competencies: social responsibility, communication, conceptual thinking, connection, cultural competency, implementation, and reflective practice. Students summarize their experiences into four short slides that is published in the annual Bryn Mawr and Beyond Book.
