FOR RELEASE

HUNTINGTON, Ind. — Huntington University’s Enterprise Resource Center has much to celebrate these days.

In light of its 10-year anniversary, the ERC has reported impressive numbers that demonstrate the success of Huntington University interns.

Over the past 10 years, 2,381 HU students have completed internships, practica and job shadows. Three hundred and twenty of those students have taken an internship just within the last year, and 78 of those students chose to do their internship over the January-term.

In addition, more than 1,000 companies have hosted an HU student. Of these experiences, 750 of those companies are in the state of Indiana.

“It has been a blessing to be part of forming and strengthening HU’s relationships within the community,” said Kay Schwob, director of experiential learning at HU. “It has been mutually beneficial for our students to receive hands-on learning experiences and organizations to find potential new employees through these relationships.”

The Enterprise Resource center, founded in 2004, works with local and national area businesses, not-for-profit organizations, social service agencies, churches and local governments to provide meaningful “real-world” internship experiences for Huntington students.
