Expected MPP 2017
B.A, Urban & Community Studies, University of Connecticut
Prior to the MPP program, Su-Teng attended the University of Connecticut where she earned a degree in Urban and Community Studies. In her third year of her undergraduate career, she and a friend co-formed the Asian American Society at the Hartford campus, where she started as Secretary one semester and then President the next. In her final semester of her undergraduate studies, Su-Teng interned at the Connecticut General Assembly for the House Democrats and at a local non¬profit, Hartford Food Systems under the Policy Analyst. Su-¬Teng’s hobbies include working out, watching the next new movie in theaters, and trying new foods.
What attracted Su-Teng to UConn’s MPP program was the program’s competitive internship opportunities as well as its vigor in preparing its students for the career after the program. The program’s strong sense of a learning community among its faculty, staff, and students was also an attraction. Su-Teng is a first year student and is excited to take courses within the concentration of Public Policy Analysis and Program Evaluation.
After the program, Su-Teng sees herself working as policy analyst either at the state or federal level, but she is open to employment in both the public and private sector. “The MPP program strives to offer students a multitude of opportunities — from networking and internship opportunities to professional development seminars where the skills you learn can be applied in future work places. I encourage potential students to take full advantage of these opportunities.”
