U-M honored as Employer of the Year for innovative internships

By Joe Serwach  |  News Service

The university has been named nonprofit Employer of the Year by Crain’s Detroit Business and the Detroit Regional Chamber’s InterninMichigan.com program.

Because students who intern in Michigan are far more likely to take permanent jobs here, the chamber has made boosting internships a major priority at its last two Mackinac Regional Policy Conferences. The award, presented for the first time this year, recognizes U-M’s innovative Development Summer Internship Program.

“Our commitment to the Michigan economy includes creating and supporting careers for new graduates. We want to keep talented graduates in the state, and internships are an excellent path to full-time employment,” President Mary Sue Coleman says. “We are pleased to expose students to careers in philanthropy through our innovative Development Summer Internship Program.”
