Cornell Fellow in Public Affairs
Office of Senator Tom Harkin
Aims of the Fellowship
My Cornell Fellowship in Representative Government was conducted with the Office of U.S. Senator Tom Harkin. I spent most of my fellowship in Senator Harkin's personal office in D.C.; however I also gained experience in the Senator's Des Moines office and the Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions subcommittee office. I attended briefings for legislative assistants, subsequently summarizing and reporting on the details, and spent time collecting data on varying subjects for staff persons.
