State APSCUF's government-relations and communications winter 2016-17 intern is Alexandria Mansfield, who will enter her junior year at Indiana University of Pennsylvania in the spring. Mansfield majors in journalism and public relations with a minor in human services.
The Cook Honors College student said she is looking forward to utilizing her writing skills in a new environment.
"I hope this experience will help me clarify where I see my career path taking me — whether it be in journalism or public relations," Mansfield said.
While at school, she works in the provost’s office and as the news editor for The Penn, IUP’s student-run newspaper. In her free time, Mansfield enjoys reading, spending time with pets, and teaching herself how to knit.
Christopher Dunne started working for APSCUF this month in the position of research specialist.
Dunne joins us after earning his Master of Science degree in economic theory and policy at the Levy Economics Institute of Bard College, before which he worked with the Canada Post/Canadian Union of Postal Workers.
