Community Partners and Students

The Community Partner works very closely with the student and may provide them with following information:

  • What the organization does and how it operates
  • Safety regulations; parking information; lunch protocol
  • Security and confidentiality information
  • Acceptable dress and appearance
  • Special industry jargon
  • Specific work standards and procedures
  • Personnel who can answer different types of questions
  • How to contact their supervisor/mentor
  • Email and internet protocol
  • Expectations for the project

This is only a sampling of the type of communication that may take place between the community partner and the student.  Communication topics will vary from experience to experience.
