HARRISBURG, Pa. - Jordan Schultze, a Slippery Rock University senior political science and philosophy major, is working for the state Department of Conservation and Natural Resources as part of a 15-week internship sponsored by Pennsylvania's State System of Higher Education.

Schultze is one of 11 students participating in The Harrisburg Internship Semester 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 14 State System universities to participate.

Schultze is the son of Dave and Val Schultze and is a 2010 graduate of Grove City High School. He and the other students participating in the program will also attend several academic seminars during their spring semester internships. Each of the students will complete an individualized research project as part of the program's requirements.

More than 600 students from State System universities have participated in THIS since the program's inception in 1989; each gaining valuable insight into the workings of state government at the policy-making level. Interns have worked with dozens of state agencies, as well as in the offices of the governor, the speaker of the House of Representatives and the attorney general.

State System students interested in participating in THIS in a future semester may obtain information on the program by contacting their individual campus coordinator or their University's cooperative or internship office, or by calling the Dixon University Center at: 717.720.4089.
