Cade Stone is a fourth year Government and Plan II Honors Student originally from Austin, Texas. He is currently spending the Fall semester in Washington D.C. as a Bill Archer fellow, where he is taking government course work and working full time as a Max Kampelman Fellow with the U.S. Helsinki Commission. Cade has the distinct pleasure of counting himself as a returning Undergraduate Fellow and he credits the Clements Center for helping him discover his specific interests within the broad sphere of foreign policy; namely, environmental geopolitics and trans-Atlantic affairs. Around campus, Cade has been involved with the Tejas Club, Texas 4000 for Cancer (with whom he biked from Austin to Anchorage during the summer of 2018), UT CMHC, and the Annette Strauss Institute for Civic Life. He has been lucky enough to experience American Federalism at its many ascending levels, from researching Austin city council activity with the Annette Strauss Institute to interning in the Speaker’s Office of the Texas House of Representatives to living and learning in Washington D.C. Ultimately, he has returned repeatedly to an overriding fascination with the global stage and America’s seminal role on it. When in town, Cade can likely be found at a coffee shop, local park, or one of Austin’s innumerable breakfast taco institutions.
