On-Campus Jobs & PRAC102

There are a number of opportunities to work on campus. On-campus jobs are posted on Handshake. Additional on-campus opportunities can be found on department’s websites and in myUMBC.

NOTE: It is not advised to knock on every faculty/staff member’s door. If doing in-person outreach we recommend asking at departments’ main reception or speaking with select faculty in which you have a class with, connection to, or established interest in their research.
As an institution that receives federal financial assistance, UMBC also adheres to Title IX and does not discriminate on the basis of sex. At UMBC, Title IX reports may be made through the online reporting form or you can contact the University’s Title IX Coordinator to file a report or for inquiries.
