VICE PRES INFORMATION TECHNLGY (UA-VPIT-IUBLA)
For years the Bepko Internship Program has been upholding Chancellor Bepko's commitment to diversity within IT. The program targets applications from Indiana University student populations that are traditionally under-represented in information technology professions and places them in high quality internships where they are mentored by top professionals and gain first hand experience in their field. Interns are compensated competitively and have the ability to work flexible hours to accommodate class schedules.
At University Information Technology Services (UITS) we ensure a workplace that encourages growth, flexibility, and creativity, as well as a culture that champions inclusion, diversity, and overall employee well-being through programs supported university wide. Our core values define who we are, how we act and what we aspire to, which helps us to make amazing things happen in each neighborhood, community, and county we touch. As an Equal Opportunity Employer, we believe in each person's potential, and we'll help you reach yours.
