Taubman College's Spring Break Connections externship program allows students to gain experience in a work environment while developing marketable real-world skills. Gaining hands-on experience in the student's specific field gives them a deeper understanding of their intended profession.

This program is held during the week of University of Michigan's spring break. The student is responsible for all travel and living arrangements and expenses. Host organizations are asked to engage the student in a variety of observational and/or hands-on activities to further their understanding of the practice of architecture or urban planning. The program is open to currently enrolled Taubman College students.

In March 2013, 192 students (170 architecture, 13 planning and 9 urban design) were hosted by 179 firms and organizations in 23 U.S. cities.

We would like to thank the firms and organizations who took time from their busy schedules to host a student.
