After more than 50 years as a Department of Political Science professor, Dr. John Straayer retired in the spring of 2018. A beloved teacher, Dr. Straayer is known for his longtime leadership of Colorado State University’s legislative internship program at the Colorado State Capitol. In Fall 2017, the Straayer Center for Public Service Leadership was launched to honor his legacy by providing expanded public service-oriented professional development opportunities for CSU students.

Established by Dr. Straayer and his wife, Judy, the John Straayer Citizenship and Public Service Scholarship Endowment opens doors to these internship experiences including the Legislative Internship Program, enabling more students to participate without financial burden.

Make your gift today to celebrate John’s retirement and honor his legacy at Colorado State University by giving to what he cares about most: access to a dynamic, experiential political science education for all students.
