New ASU Pastor Center Director Works To Bring Young People Into Politics, Public Service

In 2015, ASU announced the creation of the Pastor Center for Politics and Public Service.

Ed Pastor had returned to Arizona after serving in Congress from 1991 to 2015 and wanted to stay involved in public service — including by helping students learn more about the process and why they should want to get involved.

Alberto Olivas, executive director of the Pastor Center, talked about getting young people interested in politics and public service — and keeping them interested even when their favorite candidates don’t win.

Steve Goldstein was a host at KJZZ from 1997 to 2022.
