Engage with students at DEC

There are two main ways to engage: Sign up as a volunteer, or help a Tufts student learn on the job. Read on to learn more.

Volunteer at DEC

Mentor or coach a student or team

Speak with students in an undergraduate class

Screen applications or judge a competition

Help connect students to internships and jobs

Fall and Spring: Host an unpaid intern for credit

The Entrepreneurial Internship course allows students to earn 3 credits while working as an intern for their company sponsor during the semester. Under the guidance of a faculty member, students have a chance to apply concepts learned in the classroom and acquire new skills as they address real life challenges.

Summer: Post a summer internship job

For alumni-led companies who fit criteria, the Entrepreneurial Internship Program allows students who have received an offer for an unpaid summer internship to apply for a chance of getting a $4,500 grant.

Sponsor an event to drive awareness

Students have great awareness of the big names in financial services, managing consulting, and big tech, but find it hard to gain access to the network of entrepreneurial companies led by alumni. Sponsor an in-person event and start building awareness and connections with students for your company.
