Internship Opportunities

MSU Safe Place interns have the opportunity to engage with each service area available. Interns are asked to take on tasks from each service area in order to learn about multiple different ways professionals show up in this work. During an intern's time at Safe Place, they may have to complete additional training in order to provide a variety of services.

At this time Fall 2022 or Spring 2023 semester intern applications are closed. Summer semester intern applications open in April 2023.

We encourage you to explore the Service Areas available.
