Position Overview

Intern UCO positions are Student Transformative Learning Record (STLR) funded projects through which students apply academic knowledge gained in their courses to a supervised work situation. STLR expands students' perspectives of their relationships with self, others, community, and environment to develop employability, communication, and citizenship skills for success after graduation. STLR documents 5 of the Central 6 tenets for students to showcase to employers, graduate schools, scholarship committees, and others. These tenets are: Global & Cultural Competencies; Health & Wellness; Leadership; Research, Creative & Scholarly Activities; and Service Learning & Civic Engagement.
