UH West Oʻahu will once again offer students a chance to work at the state Legislature through internships and has gathered a venerable group of speakers that includes U.S. Rep. Colleen Hanabusa to help explain the program and work.
The event is scheduled for 12:30-1:30 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 21, at the ʻUluʻulu Archive Exhibition Space. The panelists include:
- Hawaiʻi Congresswoman Colleen Hanabusa
- Political Science Assistant Professor Dr. Masahide Kato
- UH West Oʻahu Government Affairs Specialist Wendy Tatsuno
- Executive Assistant to the Chancellor Ken Inouye
The Hawaiʻi State Legislative Internship Program provides UH West Oʻahu students with the unique opportunity to work with legislators in either the Hawaiʻi State House of Representatives and the Senate. Interns will gain insights into elective politics and observe the legislative decision-making process.
Interns work an average of 40 hours per week assisting a senator or representative from January through May 2018.
Interns will get paid for work and receive the full cost of spring 2018 tuition while earning 12 academic credits. The Hawaiʻi State Legislative Internship Program is open to UH West Oʻahu students only.
