Role of Intern 

• The intern should complete a learning contract that defines the nature of the work experience, the learning objectives, and academic expectations. Though this contract is developed collaboratively with the manager and mentor, the student needs to reflectively plan for the internship as it represents another aspect of his/her academic program. • The intern is expected to present the project to the group half way into the project and one towards the end of the project. • The intern must complete all of the work established in the original contract.
