NDIGI partnered with the College of Arts & Letters to create the Sorin Storytellers Intern Program designed to aid all of the Institute’s communication work.
This program’s name was inspired by Rev. Edward Frederick Sorin, C.S.C., who founded the University and told stories of its early years in the letters to the Congregation of Holy Cross.
The program brings together writers from the American Studies department, videographers from the Film, Television, and Theatre department, and graphic and industrial designers from the Art, Art History and Design department. These students work alongside finance interns from the Mendoza College of Business.
During the 2017-2018 academic year, NDIGI had 16 Sorin Storytellers interns, with 10 of these students earning college credit in their respective majors for their work with the Institute. This fall, the program will expand to include interns from the Computer Science major and the Computing and Digital Technologies minor.The intern team spans across disciplines to create content and tell NDIGI stories across many communication platforms (e.g., print, video, web, social media). In addition, interns have access to all of NDIGI’s programs, giving them exposure to the investment management industry they may not receive in their usual course load.
