Cameron D Carlson - Student Director

Bountiful, UT
Integrated Studies: Earth Science and Information Technology

I am involved in the DSU Institute of Politics because within the last couple of years, I have become more educated and well informed in the political arena. I have realized the importance of political and civic awareness, the impact our government can have on our lives and the lives around us. In the Spring of 2016, I was presented a position to serve in the new Institute of Politics and accepted because I understood that serving in this organization would allow me to help other students and community members, by creating very important, politically-engaging, educational opportunities that had not previously existed on our campus.


Conner Heward - Event Coordinator

St. George, UT

My name is Connor Heward and I was born and raised here in St. George, Utah. I am a Spanish Major here at Dixie State and my position on the Institute of Politics is Event Coordinator. I joined the IOP for various reasons. The first is I knew it would help me gain more understanding of government and politics to become a better citizen locally and nationally. With this newfound interest in politics, I found it very important for everyone to become involved and learn more to be able to make more politically educated choices such as who to vote for. Another reason was my career goal. I want to work for any major government agency such as the FBI, CIA, NSA, etc. In my free time I love to be outdoors or traveling with my wife.
