Introducing 2013 Intern Rachelle DeJong

National Association of Scholars

Rachelle DeJong graduated from The King’s College in May with a bachelor’s degree in Politics, Philosophy, and Economics. Before coming to NAS, she spent a year as an intern with Minding the Campus at the Manhattan Institute, in addition to working as a teaching and research assistant for several professors at King’s. She has an interest in political philosophy, a penchant for good literature, and a severe allergy to bad grammar.

Here’s what she has to say about starting at NAS:

I am excited to join NAS in its quest to promote educational rigor, institutional integrity, and academic freedom. I hope to study the essential features of higher education and help to reform our universities in the mold of classical philosophies of teaching.
