Instructions for Professionals/Organizations
Projects can be entered at any time. Students are usually looking for projects during the academic year.
In order for faculty to have the opportunity to integrate projects into upcoming curriculum, preferred deadlines are August 1
for fall semester and November 30
for spring semester. There is no guarantee that faculty will want to include projects, however it would be beneficial to meet these deadlines to ease preparation for the upcoming semesters.
To submit a request for a student project:
Complete the project description form
. Please proofread your form
Process after submission:
Once submitted, the form will automatically be sent to five contacts. These include Career Service at Viterbo University, University of Wisconsin-La Crosse and Western Technical College, Scenic Rivers Area Health Education Center (SRAHEC) and the La Crosse Medical Health Science Consortium (LMHSC).
The three higher education institutions will post the project descriptions on their student job boards and send to applicable departments; the LMHSC will post on the LMHSC website.
If a student/community volunteer is interested in the project, he/she will submit an application via e-mail to the contact person. The professional and applicant can then discuss and determine if the project is a mutual fit. Suggested timeline is to contact the applicant within one week of applicant’s submission.
Postings will be available for 3 weeks and then deleted. If project is still open for applicants, the description would need to be reposted.
