The EX/L Project Program

Experiential Learning Opportunities

The goal of the EX/L Project Program is a simple one: Turn existing campus needs into valuable preparation for students’ careers by developing learning outcomes and then aligning those with on-campus project needs.

How do students benefit?

The EX/L Project Program allows them to gain practical experience while in graduate school. Students who complete the EX/L Program will gain valuable professional development with results that can be added to their résumé and/or portfolio. And best of all, after successful completion of the project, their supervisor will post a favorable recommendation to their LinkedIn account. As anyone who has been in the job market can tell you, a LinkedIn recommendation that can speak to specific skills is extremely valuable!

This program will be particularly beneficial for international students who may be restricted to on-campus opportunities. For many, it will provide much-needed interaction in a US work environment, and also help to improve communication skills and campus engagement.

Here's the Proof!

See how one student used the project he completed for Graduate Admissions in his portfolio  - this was the project he undertook. And he took it even further! Watch his video where he talks about the experience and how it helped him get a job after graduation. 

The program is currently only available to recipients of the New Graduate Fellowship.

Students: Please read the project descriptions below. If you are interested in one of the projects, please email GradSchool@uttyler.edu and we will put you in contact with the sponsoring department. Each student and sponsoring department must sign the Statement Of Understanding and email a copy to GradSchool@uttyler.edu before beginning the project.
