Incoming Fels Student Jacob Gardenswartz, '18, Is Featured for Work with NBC's Decision Desk

May 6, 2016

Penn Arts & Sciences undergraduates have been following this extraordinary primary election from behind the decision desk at NBC. As interns in the new Penn Program on Opinion Research and Election Studies (PORES), they can be in the classroom in the morning and in New York using what they’ve learned that evening.

PORES Director and Fels Faculty Committee member John Lapinski is an associate professor of political science and the director of the National Elections Unit at NBC. The internships were funded by a gift from Robert A. Fox, C’52, and Penny Grossman Fox, ED’53.
