Vanderbilt internship program most comprehensive in college athleticsOct. 6, 2016, 9:42 AM
For the past two summers, the Vanderbilt athletic department has placed student-athletes with employers in Nashville for unpaid internships that run for at least 20 hours a week. The goal? To provide work and internship experience usually reserved for students who are not varsity athletes. The prevailing notion is SEC student-athletes don’t have time for similar opportunities, and Vanderbilt saw a chance to alter that perception.
