The Council for Christian Colleges & Universities invites qualified graduates who are interested in Christian higher education to spend a summer in Washington, DC in order to gain professional experience and to contribute to the global mission of the CCCU. The dates of the internship are from Monday, June 5th – Friday, August 11th, 2017.

The Council coordinates professional development opportunities for administrators and faculty, manages U.S. based and international off-campus student programs, provides public advocacy for Christ-centered higher education and manages cooperative efforts among its member campuses (www.cccu.org).

The intern will be exposed to both a broad overview of the functions of the association, as well as have the opportunity to work on a specific project that could overlap with research interests if the intern is enrolled in a graduate program.
