ASUM has selected the intern team for the state Legislative Internship program. Eight interns were selected to work in Jefferson City during the 2015 Fall Semester. ASUM State Legislative Interns will be registered as lobbyists through the Missouri Ethics Commission in order to work at the Missouri Capitol representing the students of the UM System.
The ASUM Legislative Internship Program started in 1976 and is a premier opportunity for students desiring hands-on political experience. ASUM has successfully lobbied for many programs that benefit UM System students for the past 38 years. Through the years, 282 UM students have served as ASUM state legislative interns. Numerous ASUM state legislative interns are current and past Missouri legislators and others work in Washington DC. Some former ASUM legislative interns are working as professional lobbyists.
