His duties include monitoring legislation, attending hearings and briefings, preparing reports, and researching policy issues for senior staff members. Bray den is the son of Mr. & Mrs. Jeff and Cynthia Moore.
“The Public Policy Internship Program is one of few in the nation specifically geared toward transforming today’s students into tomorrow’s leaders,” said Stephanie Webb, director of PPIP. “Through this opportunity, students use what they have learned in the classroom in a professional work setting. Not only will this Austin experience be attractive to future employers, but our students are also providing valuable assistance to the offices in which they intern.”
Through PPIP, undergraduate and graduate students actively participate in the policy process at the state, national or international level. Since its inception in 1999, more than 1,000 Aggies have interned through the Public Policy Internship Program. The program is offered year-round, allowing students to participate in the fall, spring or summer while also earning academic credit. Students who intern in Washington, D.C., Austin, Texas, or various Europe locations walk away with a better understanding of their individual strengths and professional goals.
