Education and Human Development


The College of Education and Human Development (CEHD) has the University of Minnesota’s most ethnically diverse student population, and the highest retention and graduation rates for all students. Our students are prepared for careers in business, education, health and wellness, and human services.

Our undergraduate and graduate students are driven, creative thinkers, fast learners, and can handle multiple priorities. They will make excellent candidates for your organization! We have several opportunities to help assist you in connecting with and recruiting our students for internships and employment.

Connect with CEHD students


CEHD and the University of Minnesota host a variety of career opportunities to help employers connect with our students.

Employer partner newsletter

Our Employer Partner Newsletter is sent out twice a semester. The newsletter provides resources and opportunities to engage with our students and alumni.

Sign up for our Employer Partner Newsletter today to regularly find out about the needs of our students.

Tabling at CEHD buildings

Having a representative from your organization with a resource table on campus is a no-cost opportunity for employers to make connections with students. Tableling is for the dissemination of career opportunities only. Staff from non-University vendors or companies are not allowed at the table for sales-related, fundraising, or commercial activities.

If you are an employer interested in tabling in a CEHD building, please complete the request form.
