The Visual Media Center
The Visual Media Center (VMC) provides digital imaging services to students for learning, research and teaching purposes. Digital images produced or purchased by the VMC are found in the Artstor Digital Library, a database available through the University Libraries to all DU community members. The visual resources collection contains nearly two-hundred thousand high-resolution images accompanied by high-quality metadata that can be used for further research and citations, unlike results from Google or other search engines. In addition to the teaching collections, students can explore artwork and archival objects held in the University Art Collections and the Special Collections at the Penrose Library.
Anyone in the DU community can request to have still images added to the visual resources collection for educational purposes. If you have questions about requesting images or the VMC, contact the Interim Director, Meagan Callahan. The VMC is located in room 122 in Shwayder Art Building.
Our advisors are here to ensure you're prepared to execute your goals. Use this page to access the resources you need to succeed.

[My] internship helped me gain insight into one of my potential career paths... [it] granted me the opportunity to see the inner workings of diplomacy and how all of the moving parts contribute to the smooth functioning of the Department of State.
Student Ambassador Team
The College's Student Ambassador Team (SAT) is a diverse group of students from all CAHSS departments who represent the interests of both their department and the students of the College as a whole. The team engages at the college level in three student focused-areas: communications and events, alumni engagement, and career and professional development. SAT promotes a student voice in College events, works to increase awareness and visibility of the CAHSS identity, and provides the students who participate with valuable leadership and collaborative skills.

Michelle Lee, PhD '18, developmental psychology Get Involved
I appreciated that the department was small enough that everyone knew each other and everyone knew each other’s lines of research, but still big enough to make an impact in the community. I really appreciated the relationships I made here with the other students, professors and especially with my advisor.
