Well spring isn’t exactly in the air, but it’s time to start thinking about summer!
It’s as easy as 1-2-3…
Step 1- Focus: What kind of internship is right for you? Talk to your professors, EIA counselors, parents, upperclassmen – ask for their advice based on your major, career and interests.
Step 2 – Find: There is no one right way to find an internship. Networking, online resources – use them all. Head to the EIA website for more tips on finding your summer internship.
Step 2 – Fund: You’ve landed the internship of your dreams, but it’s unpaid. You still need to eat, right? Well lucky for you, there is funding available to support the expenses of your summer internship. The application for summer internship funding is now open – check it out!
Stay tuned for more info about the Internship Open House and other events coming up!

As has become our habit, we again are publishing our ‘focus document’ that lays out by workgroup and team the activities that we will be focusing on this summer. While this list is not comprehensive, it is a way for us to both ensure that everyone in LIS knows about what’s being worked on now (and therefore will generate questions later), and to give a preview to the rest of the community of changes that will result from this work.
At a recent retreat, the AD Team reviewed and updated the LIS Current Focus document. The current version of the document can be found at http://www.middlebury.edu/offices/technology/lis/about/priorities , while the draft of the updated version can be found at http://docs.google.com/View?id=dhb56n4x_221g6bb7sft . Before we finalize this, we thought it would be useful to collect comments, questions, and suggestions. Questions we have are:
- Is this document useful? If so, how?
- What could we do to make the document more useful?
- What’s on the list that shouldn’t be on the list?
- What’s missing from the list?
We also worry that this list of priorities may be confusing, given the project directory and our strategic planning website , both of which provide ways of looking at our work. The hope is that the Focus Document will complement these, rather than being yet another list of things that we are working on.
I plan to post a final version of this shortly.
