How are internship placements arranged?
Internships are arranged by Lewis & Clark internship placement coordinators. We ask that students do not initiate or attempt to make arrangements on their own. Our experienced internship coordinators have numerous contacts throughout the Portland Metro area (and beyond, for some student situations) and will seek out the best opportunity for you. Upon enrollment, students are asked to complete a form about placement preferences and considerations, and students are notified of their placement as soon as possible. We refer to the first two internships as “micro internships,” and each are one semester long. The third and final internship is referred to as the “macro internship” and provides the experience of being in one school for the entire year, from the start of the school year in August through the end in June.
