Why Host URI Students?

We know that our students will get a great learning experience working with your organization. So what’s in it for you? Here are a just a few of the benefits:

  • Our students have a minimum of 2 years of coursework and have a strong academic foundation.
  • Since our programs are not required, you have the opportunity to work with students who are highly motivated.
  • Hosting students is a great way to recruit potential employees for your organization.
  • Students offer a fresh perspective and can bring new ideas into your organization.
  • Get projects designed and completed in a cost-effective and timely manner.
  • Both you and the students will have the support and guidance of URI’s highly qualified internship faculty and experiential learning staff.
  • For more information regarding the subsidized, paid internship for college students and employers, please click here.

Options for Working With Students

  • Student Internships: Internships provide students with a hands-on learning experience that combines practical application, observation, professional opportunities and mentorship.
  • Project Based Collaboration involves students working on a problem or project based on the what they’ve learned in a previous course and/or courses. This is different than an internship since the focus is for a specific project or problem to solve and requires the assistance of a faculty member serving as a mentor. Learn more »
  • Student Service and Volunteering offers a broad concept of community involvement and awareness that can include service, advocacy, service learning, volunteerism, and political participation with the goal of helping to develop community based knowledge, values and skills. Learn more »
