The Leadership program emphasizes internship experience for all team members. Internships are yet another avenue for students to put their leadership lessons into practice, and they further allow students to gain crucial experience in the workforce. Some internship experiences also count towards the Leadership Studies Minor (see the Academics section of the Leadership website). Click below for a link to the database:

The Leadership team is currently working towards a goal of 100 percent of Leadership students completing an internship experience before graduation. Please see the descriptions below of some Ships' recent experiences:
