This course is part of the Human Ecology Capital Semester Program. Students live and work in Albany as legislative aids to a NYS Senator or Assembly Member, take a course in NYS Government, and participate in discussion forums with key legislators and policymakers. In addition, students are mentored by on-site Cornell Government Affairs staff that provides opportunities to work on legislative priorities that align with students’ interests and their legislative assignments. On-site staff connect interns to state government officials working in their areas of interest, including Cornell alumni and dignitaries, advise students in their office work and internship coursework, and provide background to the policies and politics of Albany and state government, especially as it pertains to higher education and Cornell’s role as a NYS Land Grant University. A relocation and living stipend is provided.
