The Washington, DC Internship Program provides Villanova students with the opportunity to develop an understanding of the intricacies of legislative and regulatory federal government processes through public policy advocacy while giving them an introduction to a high-level DC corporate and governmental network to utilize for job searches upon graduation.
While working closely with trade associations, think tanks, regulatory agencies, and corporate government affairs offices, students have the opportunity to gain experience in public policy and marketing. Students are assigned to one of the center’s participating hosts including the Office of the Speaker of the House, Valente & Associates, Johnson & Johnson, the Amway Corporation, the Association for Advanced Life Underwriting, Congressmen Gerlach’s and Meehan’s offices, as well as others.
The Washington, DC Internship Program is an initiative led by CMPPR Vice-Chairman Mark Valente III and CMPPR Executive Board Member Brett Loper. A Washington, DC Subcommittee has been formed to drive student internships and placements, as well as faculty research opportunities in Washington, DC.
