Internship Openings for UW-Madison Students


Willis L. Jones Leadership Center (JLC):  The JLC provides and facilitates unique, intentional experiential opportunities such as Leadership Workshops and Conferences to develop students’ sense of self and their potential to lead. Through their participation in the JLC, students will aspire to recognize how their values, goals, identity, and emotions influence their leadership practices. Both undergraduates and graduate students will also be able to share ideas across multiple modes of communication, allowing them to connect with others to transform vision into reality.
