Thirteen Students Named Congressional Interns for Summer and Fall 2018
Thirteen students have been named Congressional interns for summer and fall 2018. The Congressional Internship Program allows students to work with Tennessee’s legislators in Washington, DC.
The Center for Career Development administers the program selection and helps prepare students for the experience.
This summer marks the most students who have participated in the program in UT’s history.
These interns will work directly with members of the Tennessee Congressional Delegation to enhance their understanding of public policy and governance procedures and their impact on our state. They will also learn about critical thinking and problem solving, communication, collaboration and leadership, and career management and professionalism.
