What do our Interns DO at the Institute?
Each semester, we hire 1-2 part time student interns to work with us on our outreach and other work with the Institute. The students put in 320-340 total hours during the semester, completing an 8 credit hour internship in their degree program. The Interns have been involved with our research, outreach activities with the community, attending military-related events like the Corvias Spring into Fun Event and Fall Apple Days Festival, participating in monthly Victory Welcome events at Fort Riley sharing information with newcomers about the Institute, handing out flyers, attending military family trainings across Kansas, posting on Facebook and Twitter, untangling dog tags, answering questions about the Institute, …you name it, and they have probably done it! Below are our Spring 2014 interns “in action.”
Thanks for all you do for the Institute
Congratulations and best wishes!
