ETHOS Opportunities

Domestic and International Community Engaged Learning

Throughout the academic year, The ETHOS Center, located in the School of Engineering at the University of Dayton, offers a variety of opportunities in which students can get involved. They include domestic and international breakouts, and semester-long local, domestic, and international immersions.

The ETHOS semester international and domestic immersions are internships centered on appropriate technology projects (sophomore and older).  The ETHOS international and domestic breakouts give the student a taste of what the immersions have to offer and are open to all students.
