OLYMPIA, Wash. - WA State Legislative Internship Faculty Coordinator Day
PLU Political Science students (and their Prof. Maria Chávez-Pringle) attended Washington State Legislative Faculty Coordinator Day at the legislative building in March. Among some of the activities, “Stepping into Roles“, where interns discussed what it’s like to take on the role of a legislator or advocate during the Budget Negotiations, Mock Committee Hearing, and Mock Floor Debate. Some interns presented short speeches about their path and experiences, as well as attended a public symposium. What a great opportunity to see it all in action.
