KIN Dept. Internship Updates FA2019

Updates on Internships 

Now that we’re past the KIN paperwork deadline for internships, if you have recently secured (or subsequently secure) an internship opportunity it is still possible to enroll this semester.
The KIN deadline is set in a way that helps insure you meet the SJSU add deadline. So, if turned in late of course it can still be processed but I cannot guarantee that all will be done by the SJSU add deadline – 9/10. If after the SJSU deadline, you can still enroll but would need a late enrollment petition.
As long as you and your site supervisor concur there is enough time to complete the hours you need, then please do go ahead and turn in paperwork, even though late.
The internship page on the KIN website contains the information you need regarding, the internship specifications form, link to online enrollment form, sample syllabus, and general information:
Complete the internship/fieldwork specifications form in consultation with your site supervisor then scan the form for subsequent upload when you complete the KIN enrollment form. The link to the online KIN enrollment form is on the KIN internships page.
Also, ask the director/manager/owner of the site you will be interning at to establish a university-organization agreement (UOA) between their agency/business/school and SJSU if we do not already have a UOA with them.  Look here first to see if a UOA already exists between the site you want to intern at and SJSU:
The link for an organization to arrange for the UOA is:
Dr. Shifflett will review information and specifications form submitted with the KIN online enrollment form and assuming all information is complete and correct Dr. Shifflett will email you information needed to add if before 9/10.  After 9/10, Dr. Shifflett will work with you to complete the late enrollment petition which you then submit to the registrar.
If you have questions, please follow up by email with: Dr. Shifflett, Internship Manager, SJSU Kinesiology Dept.

KIN Community Mourns the Passing of Angel Gutierrez

KIN Community,

It is with deep sadness that we relay a very unfortunate event occurred this past weekend. One of our fellow Kinesiology students, Angel Almarez Gutierrez, was in a tragic car accident in which he passed away. 

Angel was an incoming 3rd year in the rehabilitation sciences emphasis. He was an aspiring physical therapist who was consistently involved in the Kinesiology department. Angel was a member of the Kinesiology Ambassadors Club and was the Public Relations Officer for the Pre-Physical Therapy Club. 

Angel always had a smile on his face and his laugh lit up the room. He was one of the most hardworking, motivated, and positive-minded individuals you will ever meet. 

Both the Pre-Physical Therapy Club and the Kinesiology Ambassadors Club are in the works to create an event in his memory.  There is also a gofundme that is supporting Angel’s family to cover his funeral expenses, which I will link below.

Lastly, we wanted to make everyone aware of the resources we have on campus to help cope in these types of situations. Both the Student Wellness Center, as well as Counseling and Psychological Services, have resources that are available to all students here at SJSU. 

Angel touched the lives of many and will always be remembered as a great person.

Rest In Peace Angel Almarez Gutierrez.
