This area of Senator Grassley’s website is designed as a resource for teachers and students at all levels to learn about the workings of the federal government, a typical day in the life of a United States Senator, and what there is to see and study in Washington, D.C.
In addition to serving as a United States Senator today, Senator Grassley has studied history and government since he was a young kid. He earned a bachelors degree in political science from the University of Northern Iowa and a masters in political science from the University of Iowa, and takes every opportunity he can to share information and insight about how government works and the impact of political leadership on the lives of people around the world.
