DCCCD Career Institute InternshipOpportunities for internship experiences are available to participants in the DCCCD Career Institutes. Under these programs, participants may serve as unpaid interns under an appropriate administrator. As learning outcomes often vary, there is not a set duration of time for an internship to last. The Vice Chancellor in collaboration with the participant and location personnel involved in the internship experience will set the duration of the internship in accordance with the scope of the learning outcomes. While participating in an internship, the intern will work closely with the assigned administrator and will be provided the opportunity to experience first hand the intricacies of the role. The intern is expected to report back on their internship experience.
Location Responsibility It is the responsibility of the location President to work with the appropriate Vice Chancellor to secure funding (if needed) for their intern. It is the responsibility of the location President to prepare the appropriate Board paperwork to submit administrative interns. It is the responsibility of the location President and/or designee to provide a meaningful internship experience for the intern. Activities such as mentoring and shadowing are strongly recommended.District Human Resources District Human Resources will prepare Board items and create contracts as needed for Interns through this program. In addition, they will advise the Chancellor on a yearly basis of the number of interns supported.About the DCCCD Job Shadowing Program A Job Shadowing experience gives interested DCCCD employees the opportunity to learn more about a specific DCCCD area or position while working with a full-time employee who is serving in that specific title. In this program, the incumbent will typically spend time with the full-time employee and will “shadow” him/her and participate in a variety of activities to become fully engaged with the roles and responsibilities of the particular title. Projects may be assigned as a part of the experience. A Job Shadowing experience is possible for faculty, administrators and professional support staff seeking to enhance their experience and knowledge in the district and may also be a part of the DCCCD Career Institute curriculum. To be eligible for participation in this experience, the interested employee, must be a current, full-time faculty, administrator or professional support staff with a minimum of one year of full-time experience. If not a current Career Institute participant, the employee may participate in a job shadowing experience at the request of the location President/Vice Chancellor. Employees participating in this program are participating on a voluntary basis and no salary adjustment is to occur.
