Volunteer to Support Students
As an employer, your connections with our students can make a lasting impression. We offer a variety of different ways to connect with our talented Terps. Through volunteer and educational programs, you can share your own career journey, pivotal learning experiences, industry tips, and general feedback. These options help to brand your organization, can lead to lasting connections with future talent, and ultimately support the development of UMD students.

Intern For A Day
Intern for a Day connects current undergraduate students with alumni, parents, and employers for in-person job shadowing or virtual informational interviewing experiences to explore potential career fields.
