"Arizona's Emerging Latino Vote" uses demographics and other data to project a change in Arizona's political landscape due to the younger Latino population coming of voter age.

The Spirit of Service Scholars program is offered by Arizona State University as an antidote to the cultural norms of our time which discourage public service. It is just one manifestation of ASU’s commitment to be an active agent of change, addressing society’s problems. Specifically, through Spirit of Service professionals ready to take leadership positions in the public and nonprofit sectors. With the expected retirement of 61 percent of the federal workforce and 35 percent of the state and local governments’ employees in the next ten years, it is a need with great urgency.
