UD’s DC Experience students enjoy energetic meeting with Blunt Rochester
Students participating in the University of Delaware’s 2017 DC Experience program ended their semester with an energetic meeting with Delaware’s first-term congresswoman, U.S. Rep. Lisa Blunt Rochester, on May 17.
The meeting capped off an engaging semester in Washington, D.C., during which students held full-time internships in the public, nonprofit or the private sectors while taking classes in conjunction with students from the City College of New York.
In addition to meeting with Blunt Rochester, students also had the opportunity to meet with Gen. Colin Powell, former secretary of state; U.S. Sen. Tom Carper, a UD alumnus; and Chuck Lewis, a UD alumnus and founder of the Center for Public Integrity.
Students also spent an afternoon at National Public Radio, speaking with Domenico Montanaro, UD alumnus and lead editor for politics at NPR.
The School of Public Policy and Administration, in partnership with the Institute for Public Administration, is now accepting applications for the spring 2018 DC Experience.
