PennWest Clarion students Wyatt Baker, James Ross and Cassie Schwalm completed an intensive week-long academic seminar in Washington, D.C., last spring as part of Dr. Kevan Yenerall’s experiential political science course, CPS 350: Inside Washington 2022.

The week-long seminar included topical presentations and Q&As with political scientists, journalists, policy experts, public servants and more, followed by small discussion groups led by Yenerall, and then educational briefings with practitioners in media, public policy, politics, diplomacy, national defense and governmental relations throughout the D.C. area.

The three are pictured with Yenerall at the U.S. Capitol.
