There are two ways to develop leadership and professional skills within UEP as a Daniels Scholar. The first is as a Daniels Scholar Ambassador, for which the Daniels Fund provides training and support. The other is as a UEP Office Intern
. Ambassadors have some flexibility in how they support the scholars at CU. They serve as a liaison between the Daniels Fund and the students, and the students and UEP. Office interns have a more structured work environment, performing tasks crucial to the department’s functioning, including event planning, social media/communications, and more. Interns are hired, supervised and evaluated by the UEP Office Manager. The term of employment is the academic year, from fall through spring semesters, with possible summer employment as well. Interns and ambassadors learn what it means to work in a higher education context and both ambassadors and interns will work with each other and in collaboration with the Office Manager and Director of UEP.
