Luke Kisiel of Connellsville, PA, is working for the state Department of Revenue as part of a 15-week internship sponsored by Pennsylvania’s State System of Higher Education.
Kisiel is a WCU senior international relations major with a German minor. He is one of 12 students participating this spring in The Harrisburg Internship Semester (THIS) program, which provides students the opportunity to work in all areas of state government while earning a full semester’s worth of credits. THIS invites students from each of the State System universities to participate.
He and the other students participating in the program also will attend several academic seminars during their spring semester internship. Each of the students will complete an individualized research project as part of the program’s requirements.
More than 600 students from the State System universities have participated in THIS since the program began in 1989, each gaining valuable insight into the workings of state government at the policy-making level. WCU’s THIS campus coordinator John Kennedy can share more information about the program, the application process, and deadlines.
