Philosophy of Recruitment
The Butler University Consortium Doctoral Internship Program
advocates a communicative process. Throughout the selection process
the intern candidate is free to contact the site at any time to
speak to the Training Director or to current interns and staff
about the training program. The Selection Committee may interact
with candidates for purposes of gathering information only. The
frequency of contact(s) themselves do not constitute an implicit or
explicit element of favoritism or a guarantee of an internship
slot. Candidates can assume that they are being
considered in the selection process unless they hear otherwise
from the Training Director. This internship site is a member of
APPIC and, as such, agrees to abide by APPIC policies. In
particular, we agree to abide by the APPIC policy that no person at
this training facility will solicit, accept or use any
ranking-related information from any intern applicant.
In order to be fair to all applicants, there will be no formal
contact with the Director of Training during campus
visits that happen to occur prior to actual interviews.
Visits to the training site are an option only for the Counseling
and Consultation Services portion of the internship. If
candidates are interested in visiting the Butler campus, they
should contact the Director of Training who will connect them with
one of our current interns in order to provide a tour of
the facility. It will not be possible to conduct informal visits
to Aspire Indiana or The Charis Center as they are not
able to accommodate such visits during regular working hours.
Applications are due by 5:00 PM Eastern Standard Time on
November 10 for the three internship positions. Candidates may only
apply to one of the programs we offer (Generalist or Eating
Disorders) and must specify which program they are applying to
within their cover letter. Our Program Code for the two
positions in the Generalist Program is
129311. Our Program Code for
the Eating Disorders Program is

proposed their dissertation by the ranking deadline.

files. Applicants chosen for interviews will be notified by
the Director of Training by December 15 and scheduled for either an
in-person or telephone interview. Email notification will be sent
by December 15 to applicants no longer being considered.
Immediately following the candidate interviews, the Selection
Committee will meet to rank applicants. Applicants will not be
contacted after interviews regarding whether they will be included
in our rank order submission. As stated in the Philosophy of
Recruitment statement, we may have contact with applicants only for
informational and clarification purposes.
Applicants that match with our site must pass a background check
prior to starting internship. Interns who match to our site
but do not complete or pass this background check will be dismissed
from the internship program.
