UNLV Guidance Regarding Internships and Experiential Learning Opportunities During the COVID-19 Pandemic
During the current COVID-19 pandemic, student safety is paramount in internships and other experiential learning opportunities, such as practicums, field work, clinical experiences, and service-learning. UNLV encourages virtual experiential learning opportunities whenever possible during this national emergency. When in-person, site-based experiences are required, colleges, schools, and departments are encouraged to work with students to mitigate risk and/or modify the experience if students express concern for their own safety or their families’ safety during the current pandemic. Additionally, employers that host these experiences for students must:
UNLV academic and administrative units hosting students from other universities for internships/experiential learning opportunities must follow the above directives, standards, and guidelines, as well as UNLV’s guidelines for Resuming On-Campus Operations. Additionally, students from other universities serving in these roles must follow UNLV COVID-19 On-Campus Health Requirements.
