About the National Student News Service
We believe that the media have a duty to serve their communities—and on campus, that means students. We are working to promote and produce news stories that (1) focus on issues of student concern, (2) explore the actions that students are taking on and off campus, and/or (3) promote investigative journalism in the campus media. We produce a weekly news digest, provide ongoing trainings in critical journalism skills, and work with student journalists across the country to build a national network of student newspapers.
About Our Internships
Our interns are primarily responsible for the production of the NSNS Newswire, but our interns are involved in all aspects of what we do. This means monitoring news outlets, writing articles, conducting research projects, and helping to build our organization through networking and outreach. We also offer leadership roles within our organization, and we are interested in matching your individual strengths and interests with our service’s many needs. Some specific leadership opportunities we offer include:
Copy Editor. The copy editor ensures we’re at the top of our game, making certain our content is clear, informative, and free of errors.
Content Editor. The content editor develops a running list of fallback article topics (and angles) on student movements, administrative trends, and legislative happenings nationwide.
Recruitment Coordinator. The recruitment director works with internship offices and career centers across the country to manage our internship program and works to recruit the next wave of NSNS staff.
Webmaster. The webmaster runs our website and Twitter, and maintains our Facebook page.
