  3. Complete student version of online training to prevent harassment in the workplace and submit certificate of completion prior to start of internship.
  4. Fill out and sign LGS internship learning agreement; should also be signed by internship supervisor and faculty supervisor within one week after start of  internship.
  5. Record and complete all agreed upon internship hours, duties, and expectations. 
  6. Meet with academic supervisor at Adelphi at least once every two weeks. 
  7. Write final internship essay and/or complete agreed upon research project connected to internship experience.
