Empower the Future of American Politics
Our political science program has a rich legacy of nurturing our political science students into civic leaders who go on to shape Southern California's political landscape. In 2024, these bright minds are gearing up to participate in one of the most pivotal presidential elections in U.S. history—the Iowa Caucuses.
Our trip to the Iowa Caucuses is not just a tour; it's an immersive educational adventure. Before their departure, we provide them with in-depth training on campaign management, election procedures, and grassroots canvassing techniques. Armed with this knowledge, they head to Iowa, where they roll up their sleeves and actively engage with presidential campaigns during the day, gaining priceless real-world experience. Evenings are filled with whirlwind tours of rallies in Des Moines, offering our students the exclusive opportunity to meet and interact with presidential candidates. In 2020, our student group had a transformative 15-minute conversation with Joe Biden—an unforgettable and inspiring moment that left a profound impact on our students.
However, we need your support to make this experience accessible to all deserving students. By contributing to our campaign, you are not only empowering these bright young minds but also fostering a passion for politics and civic engagement that will resonate throughout their lives.
Join us in nurturing the future of American politics by supporting one of our giving levels. Your generous donation will make this journey possible for a diverse group of students, ensuring that financial constraints don't hinder their potential to become the leaders of tomorrow.
