Industry Partnerships

The College of HRSM values the partnerships that we've developed with our industry partners — benefiting our students by connecting them to inspirational decision-makers, mentors and employment opportunities, while exposing our partners to quality interns and future industry leaders.

How to Work With Us

At the College of HRSM, we aren't just training future employees. We're cultivating leaders who will enter the workforce with industry-specific knowledge and experience.

Part of what makes our program so successful are the relationships that we've built over the years with exceptional industry partners. Representing local, national and international companies, these partners provide valuable hands-on learning experiences through internships and also by engaging with the college as guest speakers and participants in programs and events.

With the exception of our Interdisciplinary Studies program, it is mandatory for every student in our college to participate in at least one internship experience, so we have a constant stream of talented students who are eager to find meaningful work experiences to prepare them for the field. And we are also fortunate to have four dedicated internship directors who provide support to our students and partners alike.

It usually takes just one student, one intern or graduate hire, for companies to see the value of their investment. As a result, we have loyal and long-lasting partnerships, as well as a growing network of engaged alumni who find success, and then turn around and lend generous support.
