Dr. Susan Kliman advocates for paid internships in architecture

The American Institute of Architects (AIA) launched a national campaign to help put an end to illegal, unpaid internships in the field of architecture. Emerging professionals contribute new ideas and skills to the field. The federal government requires employers to compensate all employees, and emerging professionals completing architectural internships are no exception. The AIA encourages payment for those internship hours.

Dr. Susan Kliman, chair, Urban Architecture and Community Planning, was asked to participate in the effort, appearing in two AIA-sponsored videos. Dr. Kliman has worked closely with the AIA, the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB) and emerging professionals in the past. She is also the principal behind Klimatic Architecture.
