Giving Priorities


The Campaign for USU

The university launched its first comprehensive fundraising campaign in 2007, focused on garnering support for scholarships, professorships, and facilities across the university. At its close in 2012, the effort raised more than half a billion dollars to help ensure Utah State remains accessible for all who come to learn. Donations to the Political Science Department will make a lasting difference in the successes of our faculty and students, and in the future of the college and university. However, not all of the department's funding needs were met during this historic campaign. We continue to seek support for our students in the form of scholarships and internships. We invite you to join us.

Political Science Department Priorities


Students gain invaluable experience as interns. Every year, undergraduates seek opportunities for hands-on work in Washington D.C. and Salt Lake City. However, many of the best jobs do not come with adequate funding. For some students, this creates an impossible opportunity. The department aims to create a program that supplement the costs and send students into the workplace thinking only of the job ahead.

International Studies majors require international experiences. Yet the political science department does not currently have an extensive list of internship opportunities. Additional resources are needed to expand programming abroad and offset the cost of student travel.
