This is a temporary opportunity.


This position is being offered as one of a number of positions being coordinated under the umbrella of the University IT program in the summer of 2021.

These sessions will combine presentation by IT professionals and group discussion to broaden the learning experience. All individuals will also be asked to prepare a poster session at the end of the program. This will provide program participants an opportunity to link classroom learning to the practicum, as well as formalize thoughts and service recommendations to the IT organization.
