The Columbus Program in Intergovernmental Issues

    What is the Columbus Program?

Kent State University's Columbus Program in Intergovernmental Issues (CPII) helps tomorrow's leaders understand public policy development at the state level.
 A selected group of student leaders, from a variety of academic disciplines, will be given the opportunity to serve as interns in Columbus, Ohio.
 Interns study practical aspects of public policy-making firsthand, have the opportunity to establish career-long professional contacts and gain valuable pre-career knowledge and skills - and to enjoy the cultural amenities of Ohio's capitol city. CPII is modeled after the highly successful  Washington Program in National Issues.
