Irvin Rodriguez is a fourth year undergraduate student at the University of Iowa with a major in Sociology and Enterprise Leadership. Irvin was a student in Dr. Sarah Bruch’s Social Inequality and Big Ideas: Equality, Opportunity, and Public Policy in America courses which initially spurred his interest in how inequality shapes society. Having no prior research experience, the internship offered by Dr. Bruch strongly influenced him and his future plans. Irvin plans to continue his internship opportunity with the Public Policy Center during the spring and after graduation, he plans pursue a career in the field of social work.

 

"The time I’ve spent so far with the Public Policy Center has been invaluable. Having the chance to work in an environment like this has been awesome! This is a great opportunity to transfer what you've learned and apply it to something tangible and meaningful. I can certainly say I've learned a lot in my short time here. I highly recommend an experience like this to any student!"
