Students will work with Elon senior staff members to learn about higher ed administration.
Eight Elon students have been chosen for the second year of the Executive Intern program, an opportunity to work with senior staff mentors, develop leadership skills, learn about higher education administration and work on university projects.
The students include the following:
Sarah Dodge, who will work with the Office of University Communications
David Goltz, who will work with the Office of Business, Finance and Technology
Gregory Honan, who will work with the Office of the President
Tyrice Johnson, who will work with the Office of University Advancement
Kyle Keith, who will work with the Office of the President
Kathryn Knaus, who will work with the Office of Admissions and Financial Planning
Shelby McKay, who will work with the Office of Athletics
Gregory Nantz, who will work with the Office of the Provost
The goals of the program are to provide an apprenticeship experience in the field of higher education, provide leadership development through an on-campus executive internship, enhance communication between senior staff and students and to foster deeper student understanding of Elon University.
The program began last year at the suggestion of Student Government Association President Darien Flowers. It is modeled after a similar program at Bucknell University.
During fall semester, the students will attend orientation and introductory sessions with senior staff members. Then during Winter Term, the students will work full-time to complete projects they have planned with their mentors. In the spring, they will present their project and participate in the application and interview process for next year’s interns.
