Partnering with the University of Utah

Hinckley Institute of Politics


Premier political advisement trio

Foxley & Pignanelli are well known for their political acumen, and since 2007 have taught a Campaign Management course as adjunct professors for the Hinckley Institute of Politics at the University of Utah.

Each week nationally renowned political campaign experts provide practical knowledge to the students, many traveling from out of state. Students are required to volunteer on a campaign. Officeholders and candidates comprehend the value of campaign-trained students and consistently request class interns to work for them.

Student reviews of the course consistently rank the class as one of the most popular courses on campus. After graduation, many students have sent personal notes expressing their gratitude for the knowledge and valuable exposure they gained from the class. Some are now employed in various political offices and attribute their start in the industry to the instruction they received from Foxley & Pignanelli.
