Gain global skills with local businesses and nonprofits — and see increased value to your education with Northern Vermont University’s Learning and Working community.
At NVU, opportunities to learn and work are built into your academic experience.
At NVU, you’ll try out a career, apply new skills, and practice solving problems in your field — all along your educational path. You’ll gain experience with businesses and schools, nonprofits, and government and learn how your coursework applies directly to your career — first-hand knowledge that you’ll carry back to your classes to gain even more from your NVU program.
With Learning and Working, the communities where NVU students intern and work gain so much, too — skilled new staff who dig right in. Paid internships and work opportunities make college more affordable — and help you stand out with employers after you graduate, too.
Summer 2021 found NVU students working in youth education, in substance abuse prevention, and at Yellowstone National Park. They developed an ecommerce store for an outdoor company, helped manage a university athletics department, forecasted weather, and worked as audio engineers for live concerts.
