of the Maricopa Community Colleges
What is PSI?
Professional Staff Internship is offered for employees who are interested in professional development or technical training that will be helpful in preparing them for administrative, management, and support opportunities with MCCCD. An employee must have been a regular, full-time employee for three years. The applicant identifies areas of interest and designs his/her own work plan under a mentor. An internship may vary in length but not more than 12 months. An employee on an Internship is paid at 100% of salary and assigned to his/her previous position, a position of equal grade and step or to a position agreed to prior to the internship upon completion of the internship. An intern is not guaranteed a new position in the College/District by completion of the program but will be better prepared to compete for positions that become available. A former intern may apply three years after completing a prior internship.
