The Olene S. Walker Institute of Politics and Public Service at Weber State University is a non-partisan organization that will inform, educate, and encourage active leadership among students and the community in all aspects of public service on the local, state, and national levels.
Leadership and Civic Engagement--The Walker Institute is focused on helping students and others in the community develop leadership skills by providing opportunities to learn more about political issues, participate in workshops, and understand more about the political process. Through this, our students and community members are more prepared to become actively engaged in politics.
Internships and Scholarships—Applying classroom education in a real world experience greatly enhances students’ understanding of politics, and it provides students with opportunities to make valuable relationships with people in their field. We coordinate political internships in Washington, DC and locally.
