Academic Year Internships at Recreation & Wellbeing at the University of Wisconsin-Madison
At Recreation & Wellbeing, we practice what we preach. We work hard. We move fast. We aren’t afraid to fail, and we certainly aren’t afraid to stand out.
With the recent opening of the highly-anticipated Nicholas Recreation Center behind us, we’ve now started construction our second building project of the $236M Master Plan: a $110M replacement of the current Gymnasium – Natatorium.
But we’re more than a building. We’re building a movement. And we’re looking for go-getting, limit-pushing, movement-loving people to join us. Starting on Day One, your experiences, ideas, and strengths will be valued and leveraged to help us deliver mission-driven results. We are committed to creating and promoting an inclusive environment in which we celebrate the unique differences of each member in our community.
Our professional internship program is an opportunity to apply and build on your academic knowledge while you advance your professional and technical skills in the workplace. We lead based on strengths and provide intentional development opportunities including NIRSA, Region III Lead-On, and other conferences related to your goals.
