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.
