A REMARKABLE WEEK FOR TEACHERS
The Huntsman Seminar in Constitutional Government for Teachers is a five-day (June 22-26, 2015), summer seminar for teachers and administrators sponsored by the Jon and Karen Huntsman Foundation. The primary focus of the seminar is to improve the quality of civic education in Utah schools. Participants gain valuable knowledge and insight into current events in American Politics by learning from, and interacting with, political experts, judges, university faculty, and elected officials. The Huntsman Seminar is a unique opportunity for teachers to gain an in-depth understanding of local, state, and national political issues.
Twenty-five to thirty teachers and administrators from Utah are selected as participants and receive a fellowship worth more than $1,000. Participants also may choose either free lodging or a $50 per diem ($250 for the week) to cover expenses. A Huntsman Seminar fellowship provides graduate credit (3 hours of Political Science 6990) and all costs for tuition and supplies. Participants are asked to contribute a $100 enrollment fee.
The event co-directors will be acclaimed pollster and political science emeritus professor Dr. Dan Jones and Hinckley Institute Interim Director and University of Utah VP of Government Relations Jason Perry.
