Center for Public Service

The Center for Public Service supports a University curriculum and research agenda by uniting academics and action, classroom, and communities through which students, faculty, and community partners dedicate themselves to the transformation of civic life. Students can earn course credit and fulfill their second tier service learning graduation requirement by participating in internships. Some departments offer academic credit alongside the second tier public service requirement for completing a single internship. Many departments offer independent study, capstone, and elective credit for internships. Consult your major department or faculty advisor for more information.
