While internships and experiential learning play a significant role in the student experience, there is a lack of standardized information about using and facilitating internship agreements. Although agreements are essential in avoiding risk and ensuring student experiences are handled appropriately by the college or university, many practitioners do not use or understand how to execute these documents. It is important those overseeing student experiences understand what their organization deems necessary to have in an agreement, and which stakeholders should be involved in the creation, review, and signing process of any agreements before a student begins an experience.
