Office of Engaged Learning

The Office of Engaged Learning provides innovative experiential learning opportunities for a diverse student population through the Internship and Prior Learning Office and the Study Away Program.


UIS is delivering courses virtually to our students for Spring semester. We are teaching and working remotely to continue to serve students and support faculty and staff. Please contact our office via email or phone.

You can find additional information from UIS on the UIS COVID-19 Homepage.

At the Office of Engaged Learning, we support innovation in experiential and active learning.


Are you a business or non-profit seeking interns to work at your organization? Our internship program can assist you in recruiting talented students and facilitating their placement.


Are you looking to gain practical experience in your field? Do you want to experience another culture? Let our OEL staff help you explore your options in the areas of study away, internships, projects, and service-learning opportunities.


UIS faculty and departments may request assistance with: developing a national and international travel and educational experience for your students; organizing visas for international scholars and visitors; coordinate required internships for your program.
