Public Affairs Themes and Fellows
Incorporating the 3 pillars
PUBLIC AFFAIRS FELLOW
The fellow is responsible for refining the annual public affairs theme, developing and promoting public affairs activities, and serving as the chair of the Public Affairs Conference.
ANNUAL THEME SELECTION
A committee of students, faculty, staff and community members helps develop and/or selects a theme each year from nominations submitted by the campus community. Each theme is introduced during the fall New Student Convocation and is carried throughout the academic year. Discussion, perspectives and programming of the theme will be viewed through the lens of three pillars of public affairs: ethical leadership, cultural competence and community engagement.
