Starting on Day One, your experiences, ideas, and strengths will be valued and leveraged to help us deliver mission-driven results. We’ll help you prepare for the next step in your career, whatever it is that fills you with passion.
Our professional internship program provides an opportunity to apply and build on your academic knowledge while you advance your skills in the workplace. As a member of our team, you’ll have the opportunity to participate in the progress of our facilities master plan. With the Nicholas Recreation Center expected to open in 2020, we still have two more facilities to design. Help us leave a legacy not only here in Madison but in the field of campus recreation and wellbeing. Plus, you’ll get to work alongside one of the fastest growing, future-thinking, creatively-inclined professional teams in the country.
We’re more than a building. We’re building a movement, and we want you to join us.
Earlier this month, we hosted an online info session highlighting what it means to work at University Recreation & Wellbeing. Watch a recorded version of the full presentation below and view a PDF of the presentation here.
Summer interns join our team for 8 – 10 weeks between May and August. Responsibilities are mostly project-based and offer opportunities to develop specific skills related to your career interests.
