The Athletics Department offers a paid internship opportunity in Compliance. Interns play an important role in helping us run our department. Our philosophy is to provide interns with hands-on experience that shows them what goes into running a Division I Athletics program. We also run an Intern Development Program, consisting of informal monthly breakfast or lunch meetings with athletics administrators and coaches, so you can get practical insights into careers in sports management and build your network.
The Compliance Office seeks one 10-month intern who will report directly to the Assistant Director of Compliance. This internship is designed to expose the selected individual to Harvard’s day-to-day athletics compliance operation and help develop the skills necessary for a successful career in intercollegiate athletics.
Primary responsibilities include, but are not limited to, monitoring playing and practice season calendars, campus visits, student-athlete eligibility, and other recruiting and roster management related matters. Additionally, the intern will assist in educating coaches, student-athletes, and administrators through monthly newsletters, rules education sessions, and written interpretations, as well as gain experience in the submission of NCAA/Ivy League waivers and violations. The successful candidate must be enrolled in a degree-seeking program (graduate or undergraduate) with an accredited college or university that allows the candidate to receive credit toward the completion of their degree. Strong organizational, interpersonal, and computer skills are required.
The anticipated start date is approximately August 1, 2020 with an anticipated end date of May 31, 2021.Interested candidates should send a cover letter, resume, and the names of three current references to Ali Hemminger via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
