At Ellucian, we’re motivated by a mission. Higher education is facing profound change. Shifting demographics and cultural perceptions, combined with declining support and rising expectations, are forcing colleges to do more with less. That’s where we come in. As true believers in the power of education to transform lives, we’re dedicated to helping all our customers thrive—not just survive—in these challenging times by transforming their institutions from the traditional paper-based colleges of yesterday to the agile, connected campuses of today. From cloud solutions built on world-class infrastructure to powerful analytics that drive successful planning, we lead the industry in building enterprise-class solutions tailored to institutions around the world.


Our passion and commitment for learning and continuous improvement drive us internally, too. From professional development to flexibility and work-life balance, we give our global employees the tools they need to succeed so we can all grow together.



For us, an internship is more than just checking a box. It's about learning and developing your skills and exploring your curiosity to figure out what you like or want to do next as you launch your career. You won't be getting coffee for your manager; you'll be given tools to learn alongside your team and work on relevant projects that make a difference on college campuses. 

Some of our most senior leaders came-up through our program and have continued to make a mark because of our collaborative and supportive culture.  Our
12-week program will allow you to share ideas with our executives, develop your professional brand, and live the #ellucianlife.
