Internships have increasingly become an important part of the college experience. They afford students the chance to apply what they’ve learned on campus, be exposed to the workplace and all that entails, and build meaningful connections that help them begin developing their professional networks as they pave the way to their first position out of college.
Stuart Segal, Director of Services for Students with Disabilities at U-M comments, “From our perspective, the internship program with Old National Bank is truly a win-win situation. For the company, they receive the talent of extremely motivated, competent and responsible students. For the student, it gives them a transformative learning experience which hopefully sets them on a path of success and employment. I am very thankful for Old National Bank for making this commitment to students with disabilities and I am hoping that other companies take note of this program and will follow suit.”
