What is Te Washington Center? 
A nonprot educational organization in Washington, D.C., Te Washington Centerserves colleges and universities that want toextend their curricula to the nation’s capitaland, increasingly, key cities in other countries.Founded 35 years ago, it now has 75 sta, some40 associated aculty, and more than 40, 000alumni rom more than 1,000 institutions in theU.S. and abroad.
What exactly do we provide? 
In our main internship program, we providestudents o all majors academic semesters andsummer terms centered on tailored internshipsin Washington, D.C.—and in a growing seto international locations (currently London,England; Oxord, England; and Sydney,Australia).* We also provide academic seminars, typicallyone to two weeks in length, as well as customizedaculty-led programs. Every our years weorganize the only national academic programsor college students at the major politicalconventions.
Our Washington, D.C. internship program has three main components
 A tailored internship
: We maintain ties with more than 1,000 internship sites ingovernmental, international, business andnonprot organizations. With help rom our proessional sta, students choose a substantive,supervised internship tailored to their academicand proessional interests and needs.
 An academic course:
 We oer 35 to 50 asemester, in a range o disciplines and inter-disciplinary areas. Students choose one, takenor three hours, one evening a week. Facultyare highly qualied academics (a course guide with biographies is available) and are oen also practitioners in their eld. Trough a partnership with Johns Hopkins University, selected studentsmay take their course in one o two Washington-based graduate programs there.
Te Leadership Forum:
 We enrich students’internships and academic study with someremarkable programming not possible or programs o a smaller scale. For example, at ourPresident’s Lecture Series students hear rom andquestion members o the cabinet, ambassadors,leading journalists, and CEOs. Our Public PolicyDialogues on Capitol Hill program enablesstudents to meet in smaller groups with Memberso Congress or their stas. All students carry outa civic engagement project in an area o personalor proessional concern. o document, analyze,and reect on the internship experience, studentsalso complete an internship portolio.
 For more than 30 years, our students’ educations at Te Uniersity o Iowa haecome alie through the proessional work opportunities o Te Washington Center  Internship Program. Our students hae interned at the White House, a non-prot   ocused on recent reugees, the Public Deender’s Oce, the EPA and scores o other meaningul placements. A Pomerantz Career Center program at the UI,Te Washington Center is a trusted partner in helping students transition omthe classroom to successul careers in society.
