Every curated onAir state Hub, like this Idaho onAir Hub at id.onair.cc, will have at least one onAir Chapter overseeing the moderation of their Hub’s content and discussions.
The onAir Chapters will be associated with major public universities in each state and be lead by students and a faculty advisor. Each lead onAir Chapter will also help to establish affiliated onAir Chapters at public and private universities throughout the state.
We are currently having discussions with students and faculty at University of Idaho to establish and manage the lead onAir Chapter for Idaho onAir. Through its chapters, Idaho onAir will support the nationwide effort by colleges and universities across the country to make democracy and civic responsibility a central aspect of higher learning.

The University of Idaho’s onAir chapter will initially focus on training interested undergrad and graduate students on how to curate Utah onAir content especially submitting Top News articles, events, videos, and information and moderating forums in each post they curate.
Student curators will also work with state senate and house committee chairs to produce aircasts on issues being discussed and bills being proposed in their committees.
During election season, students with other other organizations like the League of Women Voters, will coordinate and produce aircasted debates with candidates.

Internships are an opportunity for students to explore and obtain real-world experience in a career field of interest. Completing an internship is a great way to gain relevant work experience, skills, and network contacts in the field.
Opportunities for internships exist in a wide variety of organizations and industries. Many internships are paid, some may be unpaid, and others may be completed for college credit. Internships are most commonly completed during the summer, but some are also available as part-time opportunities during the school year.
Internship postings can be found on our Handshake platform, our Job and Internship resource page, and on the “careers” page of most company websites. It is also common to contact an organization of interest to inquire about the possibility of setting up an internship.
Career Advisors can help with the process of finding an internship. Email Career Services or call 208-885-6121.

Department of Politics and Philosophy
In the Department of Politics and Philosophy we give students the opportunity to study these disciplines in their contemporary forms — as degree programs in political science and philosophy. But we bring these fields together by giving students the opportunity to study in a community of students who are eager to understand themselves, our nation and the world, to serve the public interest and to articulate values for a better society.
