A Western Illinois University associate professor has spent the last nine months studying the U.S. political process in Washington, D.C.
Janna Deitz was awarded an American Political Science Association’s Congressional Fellowship to study politics in the nation’s capitol. Deitz then moved on to interview with congressional offices for work placement for the balance of the fellowship. She eventually secured a job with U.S. Senator Dick Durbin.
While in Washington, D.C. Deitz has also bumped into numerous WIU graduates. For more on this story, visit wiu.edu/news/newsrelease.php?release_id=9739.
