Serve as an Evaluator

UAM students make presentations of their work multiple times during the year.  The value of these performances is deepened when outside evaluators participate and provide students with feedback.  Evaluators may participate in students’ Academic Round Tables, Media Presentations or in-class debates and presentations.

Host a Field-trip

At UAM we believe that expanding the walls of the classroom through field trips is a crucial way for students to understand the relevance of what they learn in the classroom.  Real-world experiences that include visiting museums, galleries and professional work places, allow students to make connections between their school experience and the larger world.

 

• Requested Commitment: 1 opportunity per year

Internships are an opportunity for UAM students to gain knowledge of career opportunities and learn what professions interest them.  This experience helps students to gain perspective and develop professional skills that will serve them throughout their lives.
