MSA welcomed its first cohort of summer interns this year, and today is the conclusion of their 12-week long internship. Throughout the summer, the interns worked with MSA project coaches to research, develop and advance their area of specialty. The internship wrapped up with a final project presentation that summarized the work that they have accomplished.
The MSA team is extremely proud and grateful for the work that summer interns have accomplished! Read below about some of the projects that they worked on this summer.

I worked on creating policy proposals and aiding MSA in changing or adding policies that reflect student needs.
- Gabby Rios | MSA Data & Assessment Intern
