Huskie Intern Program

Goal
The primary goal is to allow our student-athletes to gain relevant work experience that will enhance their opportunities in the work force. The secondary goal is to emphasize to the participants that although they are no longer participating in athletics they remain an integral part of our program and institution.

Purpose
To allow student-athletes no longer participating in athletic competition to gain work experience that prepares them for their career. The participants will be student-athletes who were previously receiving athletic aid and have exhausted their athletic eligibility or are medical hardships.

Focus
The program will seek to strengthen the participant's work experience and career preparation involving them in an internship program and keep them on track to graduate in a timely manner. It is theorized that the internship experience coupled with the completion of their degree will increase the possibility for hire.
