commitment to community engagement
Public service is a cornerstone of the academic programs, research endeavors and student experiences within the College of Public Programs. Building communities that are successful at improving conditions and resolving problems is a key component of our mission. At the same time, public service and community outreach provide indispensable learning opportunities for our students.
We are dedicated to enhancing our students’ educational experience and improving the communities that surround the university through public service and civic engagement.
238 community partners provided placements to College of Public Programs student interns in 2011-2012.
