Caleb Parker ‘18 is a Political Science and Individual Studies (Comparative Law with Religion) double major from Medina, OH.
Caleb is a member of the Gettysburg College senior men’s cross country team as well as the Pi Sigma Alpha National Political Science Honor Society. Besides working for the Eisenhower Institute as an Office Assistant, he is involved through the Center for Public Service, the Center for Global Education as a Global Leader, and the Political Science Department as a research assistant.
Throughout his time at Gettysburg College, he has spent two semesters off campus; one in Berlin, Germany and the other in Washington, D.C. In Berlin, he volunteered at refugee shelters and conducted research on comparative constitutional law between the United States and Germany. While in D.C., he interned with the Normandy Group, a governmental relations firm, where he specialized in agricultural and healthcare related appropriations issues for the firm. Having previously interned with the Ohio House of Representatives, he is proud to have worked on a major transportation related bill which will help to promote international commerce for Ohioans across American land borders.
Caleb participated in the Institute's Inside Politics program as a freshman and this past year he was a participant in Susan Eisenhower’s Strategy and Leadership in Transformational Times (SALTT) program focusing on American/Russian relations. Following the group’s trip to Baku, Azerbaijan, he developed a strategy that would establish American land grant university extension services throughout Azerbaijan to develop the rural, agrarian economy.
Upon graduation, he hopes to attend law school to receive his Juris Doctore (JD) and Masters in Public Policy (MPP) before a career in governmental relations.
