Student Employment and Internship Opportunities

Join our team!

We are committed to hiring exceptional university students for an array of positions and internships that support learning on campus. All OLR student work positions and internships engage in ongoing professional development opportunities and supervision. Undergraduate positions are designed to help students achieve the Community and Diversity learning outcomes under the new Common Academic Program.

Don’t know what the Common Academic Program is? Read on for a short introduction to this new curriculum that all undergraduate students at UD will follow starting in Fall 2013: The Common Academic Program, or CAP for short, is UD’s way of structuring your time in college to make it as relevant as possible to what you will be called on to do in life. CAP is organized around seven learning outcomes or learning goals that the university has identified as central to a Catholic and Marianist education at UD: scholarship, faith traditions, diversity, community, practical wisdom, critical evaluation of our times, and vocation.

In the past, college students’ focus has been split between courses required by the university (“general education” courses), courses required by the student’s major, and extracurricular activities, all of which were seen as separate and sometimes conflicting parts of college life. Now, beginning in Fall 2013, what you do in all three of those areas will be seen as interconnected and valuable in contributing to your achievement of the learning outcomes for CAP.

When we say that undergraduate work and internship positions in OLR are designed to help students achieve the Community and Diversity learning outcomes, we mean that the training, experiences, and reflections that are part of these positions are structured to help you develop your understanding and skills in these two areas. That, in turn, will help you connect what you’re learning in your work in OLR with what you’re learning in your classes. And that, we hope, will help prepare you to play a stronger role in the world.
