Description

In the late 1990s, the growing disconnect among agency managers, academics, and students had become apparent. Managers and educators grew concerned about the supply of experienced replacements, the lack of focused efforts to introduce new graduates into the federal workforce, and the decreased transfer of institutional knowledge within an agency and between an agency and academic institutions. Tehabi, filled this void with an internship program focusing on the technical aspects of management and the coping strategies needed to “survive” and even “thrive” in an agency culture. The program emphasizes collaboration among students, managers and educators and provides an experience with the larger organizational and environmental context of land management as well as day-to-day activities.
