The Institute of Politics at Florida State University (IOP@FSU) on Wednesday announced a new series of videos featuring members of the Florida Legislature and other public officials.

“Why We Serve” is a student-driven series aimed at better understanding common elements that motivate citizens to become public servants. The series provides real conversations with these individuals about why they chose to serve their community, who their mentors were and what advice they would give to those seeking a career in public service. 

“The Institute of Politics at FSU launched in October 2020 and in a very short period of time has advanced its core mission to promote civil discourse and civic engagement in politics,” said Florida State University President John Thrasher. “I am particularly pleased that this launch features two great Florida State University alumni and leaders in their respective political parties.”
