A Guide to Student Hiring and Interns

Guide to Student Hiring and Engagement Resources for Your Organization – COMPREHENSIVE PRINT VERSION

Morningside Heights is a unique community where academic institutions and nonprofit organizations learn and work together. Among our many assets are students and faculty of institutions including Bank Street College of Education, Barnard College, Columbia University, Jewish Theological Seminary, Manhattan School of Music, Teachers College, and Union Theological Seminary. Neighborhood nonprofit organizations have a great track record of hiring interns, hosting service learning experiences, and connecting with student groups for volunteer opportunities.

To help you identify potential student interns or employees for your organization, Morningside Area Alliance, a membership organization, has compiled this directory for your use.

Best of luck in your search for team members among our neighborhood’s talented pool of students and please let us know of any updates and of your experiences.

NEW YORK – October 11, 2014

A free, dynamic guide to the Morningside Heights neighborhood is now available in the App Store to engage students, tourists and eresidents with real-time events and news, a guide to the top sights, and a must-have list of people, places and things to know. The Morningside Heights app helps users discover or re-discover what is one of New York’s most beautiful and unique communities.

Situated between Riverside and Morningside Parks, the neighborhood is characterized by turn-of-the-century low-rise apartments, gothic churches including the Cathedral church of St. John the Divine and Riverside Church, small synagogues, historic and landmarked sites, and “mom and pop” stores. At its center is Columbia University joined by numerous academic institutions and centers of learning. More than 100 venues – performance spaces, lecture halls, and galleries – offer free public events which are a highlight of the up-to-date app.

The Morningside Heights App is sponsored by The Morningside Area Alliance, a membership organization founded in 1947 by academic, religious, and cultural institutions located in Morningside Heights, NYC.
