The John H. Ewing Center for Public Service and Public Affairs is administered by Drew’s Department of Political Science and is a nonpartisan organization designed to enhance students’ appreciation of public service and their understanding of public affairs. The Center is name for the former New Jersey State Senator, John Ewing, who throughout his distinguished career made education his highest priority.
The Center’s endowment supports student research, meets appropriate expenses of student internships, sponsors speakers and forums, and hosts events at which students may meet with community leaders involved in public service. Students who have public service internships or undertake research in the area of public affairs, may apply to become Student Associates of the Center. Associates are invited to all major events sponsored by the Center.
Financial support to help defray the cost of internship experiences is available from the Center. Please check with the Department of Political Science for further information.
