About Ellucian Internship Program

COVID-19 Update

Here at Ellucian, we are beaming with pride for how our Leadership Team is navigating these uncertain times. When things are really crazy in the world, as they are now, it brings great comfort in having our weekly Town Hall Q&A sessions with our top leaders, who are transparently keeping the company up to date on the business and unveiling new policies and surprise benefits for keeping people safe, healthy, and happy, in an open format for Q&A via employee questions submitted and fielded via slack in real-time.

From an employee experience standpoint, we really haven’t missed a beat. Given that ~50% of our employee population was already remote prior to COVID-19, and we have a truly world-class Corporate IT team providing all the collaboration tools to truly thrive in this digital world, employees feel enabled to be their best self at work every day. Employees also receive tremendous empathy and understanding from our leaders, who candidly, haven’t been very demanding during this challenging time.

As it relates to hiring, we’re being very conscientious right now with identifying which roles are business-critical and require immediate recruiting support. If posted on our website, the position is approved and we’re actively hiring for it. From an internship standpoint, we recognize the criticality of the program, and that our brilliant interns have risen the ranks all the way to the executive team over the years, and we are running full-force for an outstanding & remote 2020 Summer Internship Program.
