Harry S Truman Center for Governmental Affairs

“When even one American-who has done nothing wrong-is forced by fear to shut his mind and close his mouth, then all Americans are in peril.”

Harry S. Truman
33rd President of the United States

The Harry S Truman Center for Governmental Affairs at UMKC is providing a list of potential internships as a courtesy for UMKC students.  However, we are not affiliated in any way with those programs and organizations listed.  Additionally, students need to take note that internships for academic credit require prior approval with the academic department and typically carry a reading and writing assignment appropriate to the credit hours to be earned.
