New Feature: Public Policy Interns Share "Notes from the Field" on Rocky Facebook Page

Article Type 

We're happy to announce new featured content on our Facebook pageWe've asked public policy interns funded by the Rockefeller Center to provide updates while they are still working.  Our goal is to share tips from our interns, to highlight the organizations that are hosting our interns for learning opportunities outside of the academic classroom, and to shine a spotlight on the students that will become our next generation of leaders.

The first student to be featured in our Facebook Notes section is Daniel Bornstein '14.  Daniel is currently an intern at the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities (APLU), working on the  Feed the Future initiative.  Daniel's work on global hunger was also recently featured in this LI Herald article.

Interns have submitted replies to the following prompts:

  • How has the workload of your internship compared to your expectations?
  • What specific projects have you worked on during your internship so far?
  • What has been a challenging experience during your internship? 
  • What was a rewarding experience during your internship? 
  • What have been some practical lessons you’ve learned in the day-to-day life of your internship?
  • How would you describe your employer?

Summer 2011 interns will be highlighted for the next several weeks.  To see the newest entries, you can "like" us on Facebook, or subscribe directly to the Notes section of our Facebook page - which is where we will post these items.
