This study sought to develop (1) a personal and professional profile of supervising administrators of UCF Educational Leadership administrative interns, (2) to determine the extent to which supervising administrators facilitated opportunities for UCF Educational Leadership administrative interns to grow in skill and knowledge in regard to 19 Florida Principal Competencies, (3) to determine the extent to which supervising administrators facilitated opportunities in the UCF Ten Areas of Administrator Responsibility, and (4) to determine the extent to which supervising administrators perceived themselves to have impacted the administrative career of their UCF Educational Leadership administrative intern subsequent to the internship. The study was based on data derived from the responses of central Florida public school administrators who had supervised interns. The completed surveys yielded a usable return rate of 76% (N = 124). Through their responses, supervising administrators affirmed the facilitation of practice opportunities in the 19 Florida Principal Competencies for their interns. Opportunities for practice in several competencies need strengthening through formal coursework or field-based experiences. Responses from supervising administrators indicated that the UCF Ten Areas of Administrator Responsibility, surveyed through specific duties, remained appropriate for the framework of the internship experience. Depending on the educational level at which the internship is experienced, certain duties may not be addressed thoroughly or at all. Implications for practice and recommendations for future studies dealing with supervising administrators' facilitation of internship experiences for UCF Educational Leadership administrative interns were made.
