The 2017 Legislative Fellows meet with Governor John Carney at his office in Dover.
Begun as a partnership between the University of Delaware and the Delaware General Assembly in 1982, the Legislative Fellows Program is now sponsored in cooperation with Delaware State University.
For the students, who are selected through a competitive application process, the experience offers a valuable opportunity to observe and contribute to the political decision-making process. For the General Assembly, the program provides the research skills of the Fellows as well as a link to University resources.
Through their nonpartisan, in-depth research, Fellows assist legislators in addressing critical issues facing the state. In recent years, Fellows have worked on areas as diverse as land-use planning, education reform, and juvenile justice.
The Legislative Fellows Program is managed by the University of Delaware's Institute for Public Administration. Dr. Jerome Lewis is the director of the IPA; Lisa Moreland Allred is the program manager for the Legislative Fellows Program.

had excellent opportunities to research issues across state lines and
develop nuanced recommendations and observations to pass onto
legislators. Staffing the Joint Legislative Oversight and Sunset
Committee was extraordinarily rewarding, and I valued the opportunities
to enhance my planning, communications, and organizational skills
through that process.
- Lexi West, '17 Legislative Fellow
My assignments allowed me to observe how the policy-making process unfolds in the real world.
