East Stroudsburg University’s Legislative fellow program was introduced in January 1999. The program is designed to bring state legislators to campus to participate in a variety of campus activities and to meet formally and informally with students, faculty, and staff throughout the year.
Legislative Fellows are selected through a non-partisan process by a committee of faculty and staff members jointly appointed by the University President and the local chapter of APSCUF. Once appointed at the beginning of each academic year, these distinguished political leaders serve for the duration of that year.
Fellows are selected based on their records of achievement and service to their community and to the commonwealth. They may serve as guest lecturers in classrooms or symposia and are invited to attend, as our guest, all university-sponsored events on campus. In addition, Fellows are provided with an ESU student intern.
