Program Overview:

Selected LACE participants are matched with a professional alum for a shadowing experience over winter or summer break. Student participants are required to attend an orientation prior to the externship. Each pair establishes goals and plans logistics for their shadowing experience. At the conclusion of the shadowing session, students reflect on their experience and complete a program evaluation.
