Multimedia Intern (Office of Sorority & Fraternity Life)
The Division of Student Affairs Internship Program
The Division of Student Affairs Internship Program allows students to spend a summer handling a special project for the university designed to prepare them for life after graduation. Interns will work 19 hours per week for 10-weeks. These part-time internship positions offer a competitive compensation package that includes an hourly wage and housing assistance. Undergraduate students are eligible to apply. The internship runs from June 1, 2020 to August 7, 2020. The application is due February 16, 2020.
Although internships range in subject matter and skill set, each position is designed to prepare all students for life after graduation. For this reason, each intern will submit various assessments relating to their development in the areas listed in the “What You’ll Learn” section below. These skills, otherwise referred to as the NACE career competencies, have been identified by higher education and corporate recruiting leaders as critical to a student’s career preparation.

*Undergraduate students must be enrolled in the Spring 2020 semester to be eligible.
Sorority and Fraternity Life (SFL) is an area in the Office of the Dean of Students that provides students in sororities and fraternities with support and advisement as leadership opportunities and developmental programming to enhance their educational experience. The SFL staff serve as liaisons between the university and the six governing councils- the Interfraternity Council (IFC), the National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC), the Texas Asian Pan-Hellenic Council (TAPC), the Multicultural Greek Council, the Latino Pan-Hellenic Council (LPHC), the University Panhellenic Council (UPC), and sororities and fraternities that are part of our affiliate program.
The multimedia student intern will focus on developing resources that elevate SFL outreach and awareness through the use of modules that explain our programs, policies and services. For example, they may be working on the Good Standing Program, chapter coaching, and/or the chapter roster process.
