Explore a Career in Student Affairs Through UM's SAIL Program

The Division of Student Affairs at The University of Montana will accept applications beginning Tuesday, Feb. 28, for a student-employment program that allows individuals to explore career opportunities in various Student Affairs departments.

The Student Affairs Immersion Learning program, or SAIL, gives successful applicants the opportunity to spend autumn semester in four-week rotations in each of three selected Student Affairs departments to gain knowledge of specific programs, services and operations. During spring semester SAIL interns will spend 16 weeks in one selected department. Interns are awarded in-state tuition waivers and are paid $10 per hour for working 15-20 hours a week.

Participating Student Affairs departments include American Indian Student Services, Campus Recreation, Career Services, Curry Health Center, University Dining Services, Disability Services for Students, Enrollment Services, Financial Aid, Foreign Student and Scholar Services, Residence Life, Student Affairs Information Technology and the University Center.

The SAIL program aims to increase the visibility of career opportunities in the Student Affairs profession, provide students with valuable hands-on experience and assist with the recruitment and retention of Student Affairs professionals.
