Cal State L.A.'s Pat Brown Institute Announces the
2002 Public Policy Student Interns
California State University, Los Angeles recently announced the placement
of three students in internships through the Pat Brown Institute's
Public Policy Internship Program at Cal State L.A. The purpose of
the Institute's internship program is to expose students to applied
experience in public policymaking, various policy networks, and potential
careers in public service.
Anthropology major Alexandra Matson (Pasadena resident) recently
completed a three-month public policy internship with California Assemblywoman
Carol Liu (D-44), and political science major Adal Isaw (Los
Angeles-90008 resident) is completing a six-month internship with Los
Angeles City Councilmember Ed P. Reyes (D-1).
Political science major Jennifer Toti (Glendale resident) has
been selected as Cal State L.A.'s representative in this year's Congressional
Intern Program of the Leon Panetta Institute. The Congressional Intern
Program begins as an intensive two-week course in fall 2002 at CSU Monterey
Bay with Leon Panetta and other seasoned veterans explaining how the
legislative process actually works. Toti will then be assigned to a
Capitol Hill office of a member of the California congressional delegation
to work for two and a half months.
