The College of Public Affairs and Community Service seeks to provide all students the best possible preparation in their field so they are ready for successful public service careers.  We have eight academic programs ranked in the top 25 in the nation, so we have a great deal to offer.  We do community service that helps transform lives in areas such as prisoner re-entry, childhood development, addiction recovery, and community response to natural and man-made disasters.  Our faculty lead national professional societies and do widely recognized research.  In short, we are the catalyst to put theory into action now and for generations to come.
