The Michael O. Leavitt Center for Politics and Public Service is looking for students of any major to get involved and apply for a position for the 2018-2019 school year as either part of the Leavitt Center Fellows Team or a member of the Executive Council.

Whether a fellow or a member of the executive council, students working in the Leavitt Center can expect to be involved with the management and planning of events and service projects, conducting research and moderating discussions. They will also be able to interact with a socially and politically diverse group of students.

The main difference between the two positions is the amount  of time which students are required to work.

“The Executive Council is a bit more involved in the Leavitt Center,” Cami Matthews, student director of the Leavitt Center, said. “The fellows, on the other hand, are a bit less involved.”

According to the SUU website, the Leavitt Center is a student-led organization that focuses on leadership, citizenship, service and research within the SUU and local communities. While the level of involvement differs between the fellows and executive council, both groups will be thoroughly engaged in political discussion on SUU’s campus and look to increase civic engagement amongst the student body.

“Positions are open for all majors and all students, not just political science majors,” Matthews said. “All we want to do is get students involved on campus.”

The deadline to apply for these positions is Friday, March 30 at 5 p.m.  All paperwork must be submitted via email to, or in person. Applications are also available at the Leavitt Center, or on the Leavitt Center website.
