Academic Internships Office

Statement of Understanding

The Risk Management Office at PLU as prepared a “Statement of Understanding” that formalizes the relationship between PLU and internship providers. This document is important in helping to protect both the university as an entity and the sponsoring faculty from claims and charges by a student or an internship provider due to any issues that may occur through an internship experience with a PLU student. This document should be signed and on file in the Academic Internship Office before a student begins an internship with any employer or organization. These agreements are effective for up to two years and apply to all students engaged in an internship with that employer/organization for the effective period.

If you have questions regarding the statements of understanding document, the procedure for filing this document with the university, or any other queries about this topic, please do not hesitate to contact the Academic Internships Office or the PLU Risk Management Office.
