What we do
Achieving our Vision
Through the integration of theory, scholarly research and practice, the Center enhances the legitimacy and effectiveness of public service institutions and democratic governance. We do this through:
- Training, education and other talent-building programs, which are custom-tailored for the specific needs of public service professionals and organizations
- Research and consulting services that help leaders and citizens better understand and solve key challenges through leadership and innovation
- Academically-grounded, practice-centered knowledge created through research, real-world application, and publication
- A strong grounding in living by and promoting the values of the Hatfield School of Government
Public service professionals and organizations that partner with CPS will acquire knowledge and skills that will tangibly and significantly improve individual performance and leadership and organizational public service capabilities.
