In 2016, 150 interns were hired in 30 executive branch agencies. The internships attract students from many areas of study including engineering, business, communications, finance, agriculture, and veterinary science. There are also co-curricular components of the program to ensure it is competitive, reputable, and inclusive of experiential learning. Interns participate in cohort activities on a weekly basis designed to enable:

  • Professional growth and preparedness for the workforce upon graduation,
  • Exposure to many facets of state government,
  • Networking and camaraderie development among the cohort.

SPD facilitated internship events on the Government Center campus designed to meet the goals stated above. Events included panel discussions with state government leaders, professional development seminars like a soft skills workshop, and tours of state and community assets like the War Memorial.
