Being a Learning Commons employee offers competitive pay; flexible hours; resume building; a part-time, on-campus co-op opportunity (you can still take a full load of courses!); and a great opportunity to offer academic support to help your fellow UC students.

Learning Commons Part-Time, On-Campus Co-Op Opportunity

Working in the Learning Commons is a recognized on-campus co-op. This part-time co-op opportunity allows you to take a full semester of classes and set your work hours around your class schedule.

A component of your first term of employment includes mandatory registration in a one-credit hour professional development course (COOP 1000) with the Division of Experience-Based Learning and Career Education. In cases where registration would incur a cost, there is a 0-credit option. In addition, there are a limited number of recognized exemptions to this requirement. 

By enrolling in COOP 1000, Learning Commons employees will have the opportunity to:

  • Receive additional professional development coaching
  • Earn experiential learning credit
  • Get valuable feedback from faculty in Experience-Based Learning and Career Education 
  • Develop leadership skills and translate your work experience on campus for future employment

For Honors students, this course is the only way to earn an Honors experience through the Learning Commons during your first semester of employment. Questions about your Honors experience requirements can be directed to your Honors Advisor.
