Director - National Survey of College Internships
The National Survey of College Internships (NSCI) is a new initiative of the Center for Research on College-Workforce Transitions (CCWT) launching in the Fall of 2021. The NSCI is a national survey-based study of college internships and work-based learning (WBL) intended to provide colleges and universities with high-quality, fine-grained data about college students' experiences with internships and WBL. The NSCI is currently in an 18-campus pilot study and is the first project of its kind in the world. The project aims to act as a national clearinghouse and service provider of internship and WBL data for the higher education community. While the NSCI is serving the needs of the entire higher education community with respect to data needs on work-based learning, the project is especially committed to working with Minority-Serving Institutions, community, and technical colleges, and regional comprehensive universities that serve most of our nation's working, low-income, first-generation and/or BIPOC students.

The NSCI Director will manage all staff working on the project, oversee client relations, manage the administration and operations of the survey itself, and provide oversight and quality control for the entire initiative. The Director will work closely with the project team to analyze data and prepare reports and data dashboards for participating institutions.

The Director will also act as the public face for the project, cultivate new partner institutions and other collaborators in the work on a national level as the project scales up from a small 18-campus project to a 100+ campus service, and oversee data dissemination activities via scholarly, practitioner and public outlets.
