Developing a departmental policy is a great idea. Too many people abuse the idea of an internship, and it's sad that students have come to expect this.

A database of student internships might also be a good idea, listing all offers (whether accepted or not) as well as basic info like pay and work experience. Perhaps an online survey form at the end of each semester would facilitate gathering this data?

This would put together a reference manual of sorts, which would help students figure out where to start when seeking an internship. It might also have the effect of raising the bar among firms around town if it becomes known that this info lives in an easily searchable database.
