Center for Public Service
Overview of the Center for Public Service (CPS)
The Center for Public Service synthesizes the Hatfield School'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. CPS draws on the extensive faculty and research capabilities of the Public Administration, Political Science, and Criminology and Criminal Justice divisions of PSU's Mark O. Hatfield School of Government. The Center's broad mandate is to connect PSU's expertise and public service mission with real-world challenges in the public and nonprofit sectors, while forging productive and sustainable relationships with leaders at the local, state, federal, and international levels.
