ECU student interns get experience with community organizations

East Carolina University students made their impact felt across eastern North Carolina this summer as part of the North Carolina State Employees’ Credit Union Public Fellows Internship program.

The program places undergraduate students throughout the region as part of internship projects that address community-identified priorities, providing opportunities for students to develop leadership, analytical, problem-solving, communication and project management skills, as well as allowing them to network in professional settings.

Since 2016, the program has provided more than 95 internships to 59 eastern North Carolina organizations. This year, 18 ECU undergraduates were selected to the program across nine counties.
