What is a Student Life Internship?

Since 2007, the Student Life Internship Program has provided students practice in a professional setting and developed their career-ready preparation for success beyond Lewis & Clark.

Student Life Interns play in important part on our campus teams. Students selected for internships work in a very interactive environment where they are involved in the day-to-day activities of their departments, facilitate and lead programs, and gain direct experience in fields related to Higher Education and Student Affairs. Student Life Interns live on campus, and receive full housing credit (equivalent to double occupancy room rate) as remuneration.
