Global Perspective: Why it Matters – This is the public affairs theme for Missouri State University in 2013-14. You’ll hear this theme frequently throughout the year, and we encourage you to get involved during Public Affairs Week Sept. 16-20 and Stomp Out Hunger: All Collegiate Shoe Drive Sept. 28-Oct. 19.

Public Affairs and Your Career

Because leadership is one of the main characteristics that employers seek in candidates, involving yourself in the public affairs mission is a great way to demonstrate your leadership. What leadership positions have you been involved in while in college? What more could you do? With the numerous community/volunteer projects available and the many student organizations, there’s no shortage of opportunities to build your leadership credentials. In addition, with increased globalization and diversity in the workplace, getting involved in activities that build your cultural awareness and knowledge will benefit you as you begin to establish your career in the present and future workplace environments.
