Over this summer, WAGET sponsored Marquette University Student, Miranda Hartje, to attended the Washington Seminar offered through The Wisconsin Institute for Public Policy and Service (WIPPS). The Washington Seminar, a 3-week summer course led and taught by UW Colleges faculty, provides an up-close and personal view of the workings of government, with access to congressional and executive leaders, lobbyists and other policy-influencers. Students who attend also are able to earn 3 college credits. Miranda said that, “This experience showed me the behind the scenes workings of our government. Everyone on the trip was so great to work with, and I even scored a couple internship opportunities while out in Washington D.C. I would recommend this trip to anyone who is going into or just interested in politics.”  You can learn more about WIPPS here: https://wipps.org/what-we-do/develop-future-leaders/washington-seminar/
