The Pastor Center honors Congressman Ed Pastor and his legacy of service in Arizona and the nation and serves as an inspiration for the future generation of leaders. With your support, the center will prepare and empower ASU students from all backgrounds to assume leadership positions in the public, private and nonprofit sectors.

Located in the ASU Watts College of Public Service and Community Solutions, the Pastor Center for Politics and Public Service serves as a dynamic, student-centric hub of activity that promotes, publicizes, and encourages political engagement and public service among ASU students and the broader community. It embodies ASU's commitment to being an active agent of change and addressing societal problems.

The center serves on a national stage as one of 25 university-based public-service institutes participating in Harvard University's National Campaign for Political and Civic Engagement, launched by the Kennedy School's Institute of Politics. It is the first in the network to honor a leader representing a minority community and is representative of the backgrounds of our participating students and our objective to diversify the population of public service leaders.

The Pastor Center for Politics and Public Service fund supports operating expenses for center initiatives. With your support, the center will have the opportunity to engage students in public service education, workshops, internships and conferences.
