Student Internships to Kick Off June 2

Eighteen students will begin working in June in departments within the Division of Financial Affairs, Cornell Information Technologies, Student and Campus Life, and the offices of Planning and Budget, and University Audit. The opening welcome breakfast event will take place June 2.

During the program, students will engage in regular group interactions with their peers and in weekly luncheons featuring guest speakers from Cornell’s administration. New this year, students will learn more about how Cornell functions behind the scenes, including a tour of the Geneva Research facilities; they will have additional opportunities to lead their own social gatherings; and they will be surveyed about how they feel about the work environment in multi-generational offices. The interns will also learn more about the diversity initiatives at Cornell, business etiquette, and working with Cornell’s Career Center to participate in mock interviews.

Over the summer eight-week timeframe, students will be working and learning in the following areas/roles, for between 30 and 39 hours per week. (Some areas will have more than one intern assigned.)
