Why UELIP?

You want a program that gives you responsibility and work that makes an impact

Whether you are looking for an internship aligned with your current studies or to explore a new field of interest, UELIP is your opportunity to lead a mission-critical project that contributes to the success of DCPS and helps you develop real-world skills.

You want to experience education transformation from the front lines

At DCPS, you’ll get to witness first-hand what it takes to transform an urban school district into one of the highest-performing districts in the country. Our Associates don’t just read about change in the papers, they support the daily implementation of education policy at the district level.

You want to work with change-oriented people

UELIP Associates, like their full-time DCPS colleagues, are all motivated to do one thing: impact student achievement in our schools. If you are interested in being at the cutting edge of education transformation, then you’ll fit in at DCPS.

You are looking for an organized program that invests in its Associates

UELIP values our Associates and we believe it is our responsibility to develop their talent and skills through various professional development opportunities. At DCPS, you will interact with students, teachers, administrators, policy makers, and education leaders and get their unique perspective on education issues. You will also be able to take part in skill building sessions designed to help you develop as a professional.
