Fairmont State senior to serve as an intern for the Higher Education Policy Commission

FAIRMONT, W.Va. — Dillon Bradley, Fairmont State University senior and president of the Fairmont State Student Government Association, has been chosen as an intern for the Higher Education Policy Commission. 

 

As a double major in national security and intelligence and political science, he is looking forward to better understanding education and its ties with the political system. 

 

“I was interested in this internship because it gives me an opportunity to better understand how things work with higher education behind the scenes,” he said. “Being in Student Government ignited my passion and advocacy for higher education and this internship allows me to expand on that.”

 

As the session gets underway, Bradley is anxious and honored to play a part. He noted that with some of the big issues in higher education from funding to enrollment, it’ll be a great experience to see how things move. 

 

“I’m excited to have a better understanding of the problems we see around higher education in our state and assist in looking for solutions. I hope to expand my knowledge of state politics and education so I can be a further advocate for such an important idea,” he said. “After all, a society is only as successful as its people, and the key to success is in fact education.” 

 

Legislative interns serve as the eyes and ears for the HEPC, tracking bills and conversation relating to higher education. 

 

The Commission develops and oversees a public policy agenda for West Virginia’s four-year colleges and universities and is an integral part of the higher education system in the state.
