Higher Education and Public Policy Internship Program


The Tennessee Higher Education Commission sponsors a Higher Education and Public Policy Internship Program to expose graduate and undergraduate students to the state-level coordination and operation of the higher education enterprise. Interns engage in the Commission’s programmatic, research, and policy operations through an individually-tailored educational experience. Interns learn more about higher education and current trends through structured readings, attendance at Commission staff meetings, shadowing senior leadership, working on staff- and state-related projects, and completing a final project suited to their area(s) of focus.
