Internships are great experiences through which students apply academic and involvement opportunities to their chosen career field as a means of gaining valuable experiences in the workplace. Students can find internships both on and off campus.

Workforce Recruitment Program:
The Workforce Recruitment Program for College Students with Disabilities (WRP) is a resource to connect public and private sector employers nationwide with highly motivated postsecondary students and recent graduates with disabilities who are eager to prove their abilities in the workforce. Employers seek to fill both temporary and permanent positions in a variety of fields.
The WRP aims to eliminate this workplace discrimination one student, one employer, and one job at a time.
A recruiter for the Workforce Recruitment Program visits the UW-Whitewater campus each spring semester. For additional information, contact Laura Jacobs, Internship Coordinator, at (262) 472-1606, or MorrowL@uww.edu.
