The Phillips Brooks House Center for Public Service and Engaged Scholarship is the hub and department that provides support for all public service efforts at Harvard College. It is home to the Center for Public Interest Career (CPIC), Phillips Brooks House Association (PBHA), and Public Service Network (PSN), and collaborates closely with the Institute of Politics (IOP) and Office of Career Services (OCS) to provide students with a rich variety of volunteer, internship, and postgraduate opportunities in public service. The Phillips Brooks House also provides coordination, funding, and planning for public service, supports public service efforts in the freshman yard and houses, and leads collaborative efforts such as the first-year Day of Service, Public Service Recruiting Day, and the Public Interested Conference.

Message from the Assistant Dean

"All Harvard College students should have access to the transformative power of public service during their undergraduate experience. Public service reminds us of our human connection to others, our moral responsibility to respond to needs and issues in the community in which we are embedded and beyond, and provides the experiences that bring academic learning to life. Participation in public service is the primary means of producing citizens and citizen leaders at Harvard College that will serve society.”

-- Gene Corbin 
Assistant Dean for Public Service
