Opportunities for Students

Family Policy Internship
Graduate Level (590 credit with Dr. Shelley MacDermid Wadsworth)

Family Impact Seminars provide state-of-the-art research on current family issues for state legislators and their aides, governor’s office staff, state agency representatives, educators, and service providers.

Family Policy Interns help plan and execute the annual meeting of the advisory committee, assist in maintaining relationships among the organizations that collaborate to offer the seminars, publicize the seminars, help to plan and implement the upcoming seminar, and conduct in-depth literature reviews on family policy. Interns can receive up to 3 credits in the spring and fall.
