Experiential Education Assistant

Judy Bernier

As the experiential education assistant for the CDCI Academic Internship Program, Judy’s primary responsibilities are to vet new internship sites to ensure they meet University standards, ensure students are registered for their CDCI seminar classes and to assist students in resolving issues that may develop over the course of a semester. In addition, Judy works with Course Building and Academic Space Management (CBASM) on course building for upcoming semesters, complete all the necessary documentation for our instructors, and additional administrative tasks for the Fleishman Center.

What is your favorite thing about working at Binghamton University?
Coming from a background of business and government, I enjoy being around the students that are just beginning on their journeys.

What was your first internship or job?
My first internship was with the NYC District Attorney’s Office

What are you passionate about?
Outside of work, the law, and the Supreme Court, in particular, have always interested me. Over the years I have collected rather old as well as contemporary law books and follow the Court’s rulings.

What is your best piece of career or professional advice?
Making connections and networking are key, even if it doesn’t seem to at that moment. Those connections can open opportunities, months, even years later.
