The Public Service Intern Program (PSIP) TURNS 50!
Alums Reconnect on Campus to Celebrate this Milestone!
This year, the University of Michigan is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Public Service Intern Program (PSIP). The University Career Center, the program’s sponsor, will host a variety of events designed to help alumni reconnect with one another and engage with current students interested in learning about career paths and the experiences of former PSIPers.
The Public Service Intern Program (PSIP) began in 1969 and is now the oldest and largest Washington, D.C. intern program in the country. Alumni of the intern program report that it is one of the most meaningful experiences at U-M and transformed their career plans. The impact of PSIP includes alumni working in meaningful career positions, serving as Alumni Mentors to recent interns, and many marriages and friendships that have lasted over the decades.
Alums are celebrating the 50th year by serving on a Public Service Career Panel in October 2018, attending a Reunion Reception during Homecoming weekend in October 2018 in Ann Arbor, attending a Reception June 2019 in DC, or by donating to the new PSIP Endowed Scholarship fund.
For additional information or questions, contact PSIP Supervisor Lynn Halton at firstname.lastname@example.org
