Hi, my name is Noah Haines and I am originally from Wilmington, Delaware. In 2017, I enrolled at American University as a Double-Major in Economics and CLEG. CLEG is an acronym for the interdisciplinary study of Communications, Legal Institutions, Economics, and Government. At AU, I am part of the three-year scholars, Politics, Policy, and Law program in the School of Public Affairs, and will be graduating this May in the AU SPA Class of 2020.
Throughout my college experience, I have also participated in the School of Public Affairs Leadership program. During the first two-years in this academic program, I completed two social action projects, notably surrounding issues related to criminal justice reform and judicial education. For my third and final year in the program, I was selected to be the Student Director of the program, managing all of the student-led experiences in the program. At AU, I am also an active member of the Hillel, the center for Jewish life on-campus. At Hillel I have participated in facilitating weekly Shabbat services, and am the committee chair for the annual Holocaust Remembrance Week programming.
Off-campus, I have had two internships during college. In the fall of 2018, I had the great opportunity of interning for my Congresswoman at-large in the state of Delaware, Lisa Blunt-Rochester, and in the fall of 2019, I had an amazing experience interning for the Democratic Governors Association, a campaign committee of the Democratic National Committee.
