The Voices of Tomorrow: Watch the New IGS Video
IGS just released its revised video, called The Voices of Tomorrow, which profiles how we help students get involved in public service. The 6 minute video, professionally produced by John Crane Films and directed by IGS Associate Director Marc A. Levin, profiles seven current and former Berkeley students who participated as Matsui Fellows interning in national, state and local government agencies. Matsui Fellows gain valuable practical experience as interns learning about politics, public administration, and public policymaking. Serving in federal, state and local agencies provides students with a chance to apply the theory they learn in the classroom in real time settings that serve the public interest. Several of these former students now work in the California State Legislature and the US Congress.
Commenting on the video, IGS Director Jack Citrin stated: “This film is a compelling tale about how IGS builds future leaders through experiential learning.” In the film, California State Senator Loni Hancock and US Congresswoman Doris Matsui give testimonial to the value of the interns to improving the work of government at all levels.
