The University established a Center for Ethics and Excellence in Public Service, with a full launch on Oct. 14. Housed in the  University’s Political Science Department of the College of Arts and Sciences, the Center will work to foster the development of ethical and competent public officials and civically knowledgeable, responsible and engaged community members. It aims to develop new educational and networking opportunities for incumbent and aspiring public servants, including training in the legal and ethical obligations of public servants as well as the knowledge, skills and capacities essential to just and effective governance. Moreover, the Center will be a clearinghouse for information on local and state governments and officials in NEPA, and relevant educational and training opportunities for public servants provided by other public and professional entities.

In addition to its community offerings, the Center will offer students internships (both on campus and in the community), training programs, networking events with state and local government officials, and research opportunities, all of which will focus on ethics and public service.

“The programming and research created and shared by the Center for Ethics and Excellence in Public Service will offer new and meaningful opportunities for students who wish to pursue a career in public service or are interested in finding ways to pursue justice and contribute positively to their communities,” said Jean Harris, Ph.D., professor of political science and co-director of the Center.
