Taken from NEDCO July 2011 e-newsletter:
CENTRAL CLEARINGHOUSE FOR INTERNSHIPS
As part of the ongoing partnership between NEDCO Executive Committee and SFASU Academic Deans, a working group was formed back in February to develop an integrated internship program involving SFA and the local business community.
Our goal is to establish a central clearinghouse for internships, a single place where students, faculty and the local business community will be able to go for anything concerning internships. Our goal is to have the program ready for implementation by the Spring 2012 semester.
For the Nacogdoches community, it will also be the place where local businesses and non-profit organizations can go to seek interns for their companies.
The working group consists of Dr. Brian Murphy (Dean of College of Liberal and Applied Arts), Dr. Danny Arnold (Dean of College of Business), r. Adam Peck (Dean of Students), Bill King (President/CEO of NEDCO) and Bruce Partain (President/CEO of the Chamber).
The working group will present its recommendations to the SFA Academic Deans at our semiannual meeting in September.
