Harrington Center for Experiential Learning

The Harrington Center for Experiential Learning, an integrated professional development collaborative, provides you with academic advising, career-development opportunities and internships. These services are designed to encourage intentional decision-making, develop professional skills, promote lifelong learning and teach global citizenship through experiential learning, self-understanding and personal reflection.

Student and Alumni Internships

Internships are field experiences collaboratively supervised by faculty, staff and worksite professionals. Internships allow you to enhance your academic learning with experience related to your career interests in local, national and international settings. All students are required to complete at least one internship, but opportunities exist for two or more internships for those who want to gain significant hands-on experience.

See available opportunities at Handshake.

Over a five-year period, 97% of our graduates are employed or attending graduate school within six months of Commencement. One reason for our graduates' success is the internship program and the requirement that all students complete at least one internship or field experience in order to graduate. In a five-year average, 37% of Colby-Sawyer graduates are offered a position by their internship sites.

Employer and Mentor Resources

If you are interested in contributing to the professional development of our students, please consider taking on a student intern. Your job and internship opportunities can be shared on Handshake. If you have any questions or would like us to post your opportunities for you, please contact Jennifer Tockman at or (603) 526-3765.

BOLD Women’s Leadership Network

Funded and supported by The Helen Gurley Brown Foundation, the BOLD Network was established in the spirit and legacy of Helen Gurley Brown, legendary editor-in-chief of Cosmopolitan magazine. A trailblazer, Helen was unapologetically herself and believed that every girl and woman should have the space to do the same while pursuing an education, building a career and achieving her life's ambitions.
