Graduate assistants and student interns participate in many phases of the partnership and research projects conducted at CTG, and also have the opportunity to participate as part of a global community of digital government researchers. Students are trained and provided experience in data collection and management as well as substantive data analysis and product development. To date, students from a wide variety of academic disciplines have worked at CTG including public administration, information science, computer science, sociology, history, political science, criminal justice, business, and geography.
