. About the Les Aspin Center for Government The Les Aspin Center for Government
offers educational internships and training at the local, federal and international levels of government. At the D.C. program, students live in an academic community just blocks from the Capitol. They serve as interns in congressional offices and other governmental agencies and departments. In addition to attending classes at the center, students visit government agencies to gain key insiders' perspectives on American democracy. The center is named in honor of the late Les Aspin, a former faculty member of Marquette, member of Congress and secretary of defense from 1993-94.
The Kleczka Internship Program is the Les Aspin Center for Government’s local initiative. The program provides internships for academically talented students, particularly those with financial need, who wish to work in public service at the state and local levels.
