How would you describe your employer in one paragraph? What’s the elevator pitch?
The District Office of Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson is an incredible resource to the community in the 30th District of Texas. We specifically work on resolving issues that constituents may have with federal agencies. This office proves its dedication to the community every day, however, by helping anyone who calls, even if only with simpler, local issues. Our goal is to make sure that each constituent knows that they have a representative whom they can count on.

What are your specific responsibilities in the organization?

Rockefeller Center Funds Two Students for Spring 2015 Public Policy Internships

Did you know that we regularly highlight a variety of internship opportunities for students to consider? Click here to see all posts related to internships.

The Rockefeller Center is one of several centers at Dartmouth that grants funding support for full time, unpaid internships to undergraduates. Grants provided through the Rockefeller Internship Program are designed to enable students to work in a non-profit or governmental agency on issues of public policy research, public policy analysis, issue evaluation, social entrepreneurship, or activities that help shape and determine public policy - whether at the local, state, national, or international level. Grants of up to $4,000 are awarded to students through a competitive application and interview process each term. The deadline for Summer 2015 consideration is Wednesday, April 22, 2015. 

Congratulations to the two interns working in a variety of host organizations and funded by the Rockefeller Center for Spring Term!

RLF Recap: The "Resource Curse" with Rockefeller Center Director Andrew Samwick

This ongoing series explores sessions of the Rockefeller Leadership Fellows (RLF) program. RLF provides fellows with resources in leadership theories and practical skills. Selected their Junior Spring, these Seniors take part in the workshops, dinner discussions, and team-building exercises as they gain a better understanding of the qualities and responsibilities necessary for leaders and successful leadership styles.

The Rockefeller Leadership Fellows were most recently visited by the director of the Rockefeller Center, Andrew Samwick. In addition to leading the Center, Professor Samwick is the Sandra L. and Arthur L. Irving Professor of Economics at Dartmouth. From 2003 to 2004 he served as the chief economist on the President’s Council of Economic Advisers. After I introduced him, Professor Samwick joked that he needed to update his bio to reflect an area of focus I had left out–his new-found interest in social entrepreneurship.
