Additional documentation to support the submission:

Endicott College is a pioneer in requiring comprehensive internship experiences in every program of study for undergraduate students. A philosophy of "learning by doing" permeates the college curriculum in which students are encouraged to integrate theory and practice in all of their studies. The College founders believed that students working in their intended career areas could gain practical experience while sharpening their insights and increasing their skills.

Our unique four-year internship program makes it possible for students to graduate with a resume and a degree. Graduates will leave with an excellent educational foundation, substantial career experience, and a clear pathway for the future. In fact, more than 99 percent of our graduates report being employed or attending graduate school within one year of graduation.
