Internship in Building Community at Columbia University

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 serve as Program and Residential Life Assistants and hone their communication, leadership, and organizational skills while contributing in such areas as student affairs, event planning, higher education administration, academic affairs, civic engagement, media, publicity, or marketing.

The IBC is divided into two parts:

1.     A two-week Seminar in which interns work with program veterans and communication and leadership professionals to share, learn and innovate strategies of community leadership and group organization. Topics under consideration include: 

  • Interpersonal communication
  • conflict resolution
  • leadership
  • collaboration and organizational skills
  • event planning and coordination

2.      A Practicum, lasting six weeks, in which each intern serves as both a resident adviser and a program assistant for Columbia's Program for High School Students. Using skills developed during the Seminar, interns are responsible for creating a cohesive, lively, and respectful student community.

While leading the students as resident advisers, teacher’s assistants, program administrators, and by planning activities for their free time, interns find themselves challenged to grow and learn, adapt and rethink their own ideas of leadership, organization, and what makes a community. 

The Internship in Building Community is a paid internship. Interns also receive full housing and a weekday meal plan.
