Program Spotlight: University Administrative Fellowships

University Administrative Fellowship

Created in 2014, the University Administrative Fellows (UAF) program provides enrolled graduate students the opportunity to work in an administrative capacity with your group for approximately six hours per week during the course of a semester. During that time, graduate students gain a deeper understanding and appreciation for university administration. Hosts enjoy working with talented graduate students across fields on a discrete deliverable or an ongoing project!

UAF hosts craft their position descriptions in consultation with Assistant Dean James M. Van Wyck. The GradFUTURES team then circulates the posting to graduate students in the GradFUTURES Professional Development Newsletter, and on the GradFUTURES website.

A Sampling of Partner Offices

We continue to be inspired by the many campus offices that center graduate students in their work, creating opportunities for skill-building, community-building, and career exploration.

We empower graduate students to create their future(s) -- on their terms.
