University Career Action Network Consortium
To offer employers access to thousands of talented students, the University of Chicago has joined an internship consortium called the University Career Action Network (UCAN). You will need to register separately for this system.
UCAN is a consortium of over 15 highly selective private colleges and universities that was founded in 1996 to gather and share internship postings. The UCAN Internship Exchange is a dynamic database listing thousands of domestic and international internships, fellowships, and other short-term opportunities, making it one of the most comprehensive online internship resources.
You can access the consortium here and connect to a wide array of internship candidates.
The University of Chicago encourages employers to offer paid experiences to the students who work for them.
For-profit employers are encouraged to consult the Federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) when considering an unpaid internship program.
In cases in which an employer must require a student to receive credit, the University of Chicago offers an internship practicum to its undergraduate students. For more information about internships for credit and the University of Chicago practicum, please contact email@example.com.
