Faculty and Staff
Important COVID-19 Information,
As of March 23, 2020, it is highly recommended that students no longer report in person to their internship sites. Instead, follow these steps:
· Inquire with your on-site supervisor and university internship advisor/placement coordinator to see if your internship or placement responsibilities can be completed through virtual/remote capabilities.
· If you are unable to complete your internship/placement through virtual/remote work, connect directly with your internship/placement advisor to devise alternative solutions to complete the remainder of your credit hours for the internship.
Recommended Language from Career Development on Internships & Clinical Placements for FACULTY ADVISORS
As of March 23, 2020, Plymouth State University strongly advises that all for-credit internship/placement experiences move to a remote option. Direct students to discuss with their on-site supervisor opportunities to transition their experience to virtual/remote functions.
If virtual/remote functions are not possible, the following two options are recommended to transition the student into alternative solutions to complete their credit hours for the semester:
1. Consult with the Career Development Office to strategize alternative options (including project-based work and professional development opportunities) for students to complete the remainder of their credit hours.
2. If employers are unsure if/how they can transition their internship to a remote/virtual experience, connect them with the Career Development Office to brainstorm alternative solutions and/or provide best practices on transitioning an internship to virtual/remote work.
Whether an advise, student in a class, family member, or employee, we can help you advise them on career matters.
