About the Center for Public Service

A life dedicated to public service

CPS Vision

The Center for Public Service aspires to enhance the legitimacy of - and citizen trust in - public service institutions and the people who work in them. We do this by:

  • Cultivating and empowering effective, ethical and innovative leaders and managers in government, nonprofit, and other mission-driven organizations
  • Improving personal and organizational performance
  • Expanding capacity for effective participation in governance networks
  • Providing intellectual leadership through applied research and the dissemination of practical knowledge.

The Center for Public Service synthesizes the Hatfield School of Government's teaching, research and service-related activities and applies this practical knowledge to build leadership and improve the effectiveness of public service professionals and organizations.
