On-Campus Internships

Intern U provides experiential opportunities to students by aiding University of Miami departments, offices, and centers with developing and/or enhancing quality internship opportunities on campus.

While this program is geared toward supporting UM departments and offices, we are also committed to supporting students in their search for on-campus opportunities. 

At Toppel, we know that on-campus employment enhances students’ experiences and leads to greater success and retention. In return, students are able to offer tremendous value to the University by providing skills and talents.

According to the National Association of Colleges and Employers 2015 Salary Survey, graduates in paid internships reported earning a median starting salary of $53,521, far outdistancing their counterparts without internship experience, reporting $38,572.

Do you currently:

  • Employ students in part-time opportunities (non-clerical/non-administrative)?
  • Have projects or initiatives that have yet to come to fruition due to competing priorities?
  • Have a passion for working with students?

If so, the Toppel Career Center staff is committed to working with you to:

  • Identify if your current part-time opportunities can be classified as internships with the development of learning outcomes/objectives
  • Assist with the posting of positions and recruiting of students
  • Enroll students in a 1-credit transcript notation internship course

To submit an on-campus internship opportunity to the program, please complete the Intern U Submission Form.
