Institute of Politics

Dixie State University’s new Institute of Politics and Public Affairs will serve the campus and community as a hub for civic engagement, student leadership and public policy education and research. It’s core mission will be to inspire students to pursue careers in public service by providing them opportunities to connect with policymakers, politicians, activists and academics. The Institute will (1) engage with DSU students and faculty to promote political education and involvement on campus, (2) ensure the university plays a more active role in Southern Utah’s civic environment and (3), spotlight and address key policy issues unique to Utah (and Washington County).
