UCI/CCC Internship

TA Orientation


Have you ever considered a teaching or administrative career at a California Community College? The unique learning environment at the California Community Colleges means competitive tenure-track applicants must demonstrate their comprehension of the community college culture and student population they serve, in addition to possessing advanced pedagogical skills. We are here to help. The California Community College Internship Program (CCCIP) is an opportunity to gain community college experience inside and outside the classroom, receive teaching training, network with community college professionals, and give you an edge as an applicant for California Community College career opportunities. Each intern receives a $7,500 stipend during the summer training period in addition to receiving support from staff and mentors throughout the academic year as they complete their internships. Interested? Join an upcoming online information session to learn more about the program.
