Leavitt Center

Welcome to the

Michael O. Leavitt Center for Politics & Public Service

The Leavitt Center provides an important service on SUU’s campus as an interdisciplinary hub for leadership opportunities, experiential learning, civic education, humanitarian service, and public policy research. This non-partisan center works to disseminate political information and spark debate about the ever-changing world of politics and the issues that have an impact on the people of Utah and our nation.


"Public service is a remarkable way to devote oneself, whether it’s in politics or in science or art or business or engineering, there’s politics and policy involved in all of it. If students can leave with a sense of how to navigate that, they’ll be more successful in whatever field they choose."
- Michael O. Leavitt, Secretary of Health and Human Services
