Leavitt Center

The Michael O. Leavitt Center for Politics & Public Service

The Leavitt Center provides an important service on Southern Utah University's campus as an interdisciplinary hub for leadership training, citizenship education, humanitarian service, and public policy research. The center assists the university in accomplishing its mission and promoting its core values: academic excellence, social responsibility, experiential learning, community involvement, and personal growth.

"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
