Oberlin, Ohio—A 15-week internship resource bundle is now available from the Natural Stone University. The resources, developed by Women in Stone, are ideal for students pursuing a degree in architecture, landscape architecture or interior design, the organization said.
The set of tools will make it easier for stone companies to open their doors to students to help nurture an appreciation and preference for natural stone in their future projects, according to the organization. The turn-key templates allow assignments and learning outcomes to be documented throughout the program, benefitting both student and professor.
The internship resource bundle includes a detailed syllabus and templates for assignments including:
- Weekly Journals

Courses included in the bundle cover topics relevant to the stone industry, including geology, silicosis and accident prevention, stone testing and specifying and design trends. This resource can also be used to onboard new employees or prequalify workers for jobs in the stone industry.
