Yingyang Wu

Master's Student in Education and Volunteer

Yingyang Wu, a first-year Master's student in Instructional Systems Technology, was born and raised in southeast China. Her experience volunteering during undergrad in China helped to foster her interest in cross-cultural communication. Upon coming to America, Yingyang drew upon this every growing interest to volunteer for EASC. She has since been an active volunteer for EASC, leading hands-on activities in Chinese crafts at a center for individuals with developmental disabilities; giving a presentation at a local retirement center about the Chinese New Year; and introducing local scouts and the community to Chinese culture at Mathers Museum. “I hope that by serving at the East Asian Studies Center, I could spread the fascinating inter-cultural experience and contribute to the mutual understanding between American and Asian culture at IUB,” she says.

East Asian Studies Center Internship Program

Looking for real-world experience to put on your resume? Want to get the most of IU’s multi-cultural atmosphere and get involved in the East Asian community in Bloomington? EASC has just the opportunity for you.

Indiana University’s East Asian Studies Center has designed an unpaid summer internship program open to IU undergraduate and graduate students. The eight-week program lasts from June 1 – July 31. Interns will work alongside EASC staff in planning and executing the full range of this unique National Resource Center’s activities. EASC works to increase awareness of East Asia through community outreach and academic support. Each semester, EASC hosts numerous renowned scholars as part of its colloquium series. This October, EASC will hold the third annual Korean Night, a community event everyone can enjoy. As an EASC intern, you can be an integral part of organizing these and many more events.

Hours for the internship can be arranged according to your schedule. Following the program, interns can consider applying for an EASC staff position. If you’re interested in an internship at EASC but won’t be available over the summer, consider applying for our fall or spring internship.

To apply to the summer internship, please submit a resume and cover letter to easc@indiana.edu by March 31st, 2015. If you have questions about the program, you can also send them to the same email address.
