If you have a successful interview and secure an internship placement, you must then confirm your placement by completing the required forms. The forms to be completed include the Internship Job Description, Memorandum of Understanding, and the Online Intern Information Sheet. Your CPS Internship Coordinator will help you complete these forms should you have any questions.
Please read the descriptions and instructions carefully. If any form is omitted, your internship will not be awarded credit. Contact your internship coordinator for due dates.
1. Public Service Activity - A Public Service Activity (PSA) is the internship job description. Your host agency/supervisor is required to submit a PSA to the Center for Public Service before you can begin your internship. If your site has not submitted a PSA, please request that your supervisor complete it online through the Center for Public Service Information System.
2. Memorandum of Understanding - The MOU serves as your learning plan as well as an agreement between you and your internship site. This should be filled out, reviewed and signed by both you and your supervisor. One (1) copy should be submitted to your CPS Internship Coordinator. Copies of the agreement should also be kept by you and your supervisor. CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD THE MOU.
3. Online Internship Information Sheet - The Internship Information Sheet (IIS) is to be filled out by you and you alone and will then be reviewed by the Center for Public Service Executive Committee for final approval. As a part of your IIS, please include the following information: how your work will benefit the public; how your work is supported by your major/minor; where you will be conducting your service; how you will travel to and from your service; who your supervisor is; a sample schedule of when you plan on interning. Contact your CPS Internship Coordinator before filling this form out; s/he must give you access to this form via the Center for Public Service Information System.
