Farber Center

At the W.O. Farber Center for Civic Leadership, we prepare you for a lifetime of leadership as a citizen of the community, state, nation and world.

The center is housed in the Department of Political Science and offers a minor in civic leadership studies. Whether you’re interested in pursuing politics, becoming a lawyer, leading a nonprofit or becoming an activist, you’ll learn the leadership and communication skills you need to make a difference in your organization.

In addition to civic leadership studies coursework, we also:

  • Host major conferences and speakers on civic leadership
  • Help public and non-profit organizations resolve difficult problems
  • Provide community outreach through internships and service projects

Civic leadership studies students are eligible for internship and travel assistance from the Farber Fund endowment.
