Hannah Jenuwine

Hannah Jenuwine will complete her graduate fellowship in the office of a Member of Congress from her home state of Michigan. Prior to beginning her Master of Public Administration at the John Glenn College of Public Affairs, Ms. Jenuwine worked as a research assistant at the American Institutes for Research (AIR), where she contributed to projects related to postsecondary student success, postsecondary models of competency-based education, K-12 school turnaround and early warning systems. During her undergraduate career she worked for Horizons-Upward Bound, a college preparatory program and completed a research fellowship investigating the establishment of a Flint-area promise scholarship. She is a proud graduate of Michigan State University, holding a Bachelor of Arts in Social Relations and Policy.

Ms. Jenuwine chose the MPA-DC program to explore career opportunities in federal policymaking and administration, apply the knowledge she has gained in graduate school, and expand her network in DC. Ms. Jenuwine is using her graduate studies to pivot from research into public administration and plans to pursue a career in which she can use her researcher lens to make data-driven decisions in policymaking. Through pursuing a career in an administrative agency or as a legislative staffer, she hopes to create or advocate for policy that improves social wellbeing through education, workforce, economic, and community development.

Ms. Jenuwine thoroughly enjoys learning with her MPA cohort and values the community present at the John Glenn College. In her view, the John Glenn College faculty ensure that the course material presented is applicable in real-world work scenarios, which she feels has prepared her to succeed as she re-enters the workforce upon graduation.

She hopes to work to create a more equitable and inclusive society.

Ms. Whitmore’s favorite aspect of the John Glenn College is the attentive faculty and staff. To Ms. Whitmore, the Glenn College has proven that it can truly take the benefits of a large university and combine them with the care and personalization of a small school. She has found the Glenn College to be an incredible place to learn how to make a difference in the world.
