Supervision and Evaluation of Interns

Interns are expected to perform the assignments, as defined by the organization in which they work, to the standards of the organization. Typically, ILR interns are highly motivated and self-disciplined and will not require close supervision. It is nonetheless imperative that one or more people in the sponsoring organization assume responsibility for supervising and guiding the intern. During the internship, interns are also under the supervision of a member of the school's faculty. Halfway through the internship and again at the completion of the assignment, the supervisor in the sponsoring organization is required to provide an evaluation of the intern's performance and learning experience.
