Career and Leadership Development assists students from their first year through graduation and beyond. One of our strengths is our exceptional internship program, and we provide $400,000 in funding and opportunities for 200 students each summer to work in paid internships.

Help your student by encouraging him or her to:

  • visit our office often during the four years including seeking guidance in developing a resume during their first year
  • attend workshops, panels and other events hosted by Career and Leadership Development
  • apply for a summer internship
  • consider participating during January of their junior or senior year in Beyond the Gates: Preparing for Life and Work after Sewanee

You can help all students when you:

  • recruit Sewanee students for your organization
  • alert our staff to entry-level positions or internships in your organization or elsewhere
  • provide an internship opportunity with your organization
  • participate in campus programs related to your career
