The Internship in Building Community is ideal for growth-oriented, creative college students who are interested in collaborating with others to build and help shape a sophisticated residential and campus life community.

Interns work in both residential and student services capacities to support and advocate for the students in Columbia University's Summer Immersion Program. Interns help provide for students' cultural experience and safety, as well as self-management and university life in the United States.

Interns hone their communication, leadership, and organizational skills while contributing to such areas as student affairs, event planning, higher education administration, academic affairs, public health, civic engagement, media, publicity, or marketing.

Applicants must be enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate degree program and have studied in the United States for at least one academic year.
