Washington DC Government and Policy Student Trek: March 23-24
Looking for a fun and inspiring way to spend part of your spring break? CCI and Middlebury Professional Networks are partnering to provide a “Government & Policy Student Trek” to Washington, DC on Monday, March 23 and Tuesday, March 24.
The objective is to introduce you to alumni working in all areas of government and policy and expose you to real-world professional experiences that will enable you to apply your liberal arts learning while informing your career exploration and other post-graduate planning.
Who should apply?
If you are interested in learning about or working in government or policy, this trek is for you! This trip is open to all majors, all students, but preference will be given to non-seniors as the emphasis is on exploration.
Who will we meet?
In the past we have engaged alumni who work in exciting roles on Capitol Hill, the State and Treasury departments, think thanks like Brookings or the Aspen Institute, and non-profits like the National Democratic Institute.

Are you passionate about redistricting, GIS, community education, and/or grassroots organizing?
Join the GeoCivics team at the University of Colorado Colorado Springs this summer to gain experience in linking up with national organizations working on electoral redistricting and fair voting practices, identifying college and high school student groups who are interested in these topics, and researching key current events at the local, state, and national scales that pertain to redistricting.
This summer’s intern will work directly with project lead Dr. Rebecca Theobald (an alumnae) to introduce audiences to the importance of online mapping tools, conduct research on organizations across the country, and execute the communications strategy for the project. Time management and attention to detail are musts, since most of your work will be independent and self-directed. By the end of the summer, we expect to be ready to have substantive discussions about apportionment and redistricting in fifty locations. Come help communities find a new voice to address gerrymandering.
