Christian Life Commission Welcomes Jye Shafer, Public Policy Intern
Jye Shafer is from College Station, Texas, where he is studying for a Master’s in policy analysis at the George Bush School of Government and Public Service. He earned his undergraduate degree in philosophy at Clemson University in 2008. As an undergraduate, he was an editor for the Clemson student newspaper, The Tiger, and an active musician.
Since graduating, he has worked as a field technician for Texas A&M’s Department of Wildlife and Fisheries Sciences and as a consultant at the university’s writing center. At the writing center, he works one-on-one with a variety of students, from freshmen to PhD candidates writing dissertations. He also works closely with professors in diverse fields to grade written work.
Jye’s policy interests are predominantly issues of social justice, energy and environment, and ethics. At the Bush School, he has taken courses in economic and statistical analysis, state and local government, energy and security policy, and public finance. During his time with the Christian Life Commission, he hopes to gain experience researching relevant policy issues and to learn about the day-to-day routine of lobbyists working for a variety of causes.
