Campus Ex-L Program

Give CU students a paid work-integrated learning (WIL) opportunity on campus through th e Campus Experiential Learning program (Campus Ex-L). Hiring a student to work with you can provide them with valuable experience towards their academic program, while you benefit from the talent of motivated students to help you advance your projects!

Projects can start at a minimum of 5 hours of work.

Why hire a student?

Offering an internship is a win-win both for you and the student.

Students can help you innovate by offering a skillset that is missing in your unit, providing a fresh perspective on day-to-day operations, and providing you with the opportunity to develop as a leader.

Experiential Learning gives students practical experience through which they can engage in career exploration and self-discovery. An internship bridges the gap between their theoretical studies and life after graduation by allowing them to apply the skills and knowledge learned in the classroom. You can play a key role in the student’s professional training and socialization and can help open the doors that lead to their future careers.
