About the Center for Public Service and Engaged Scholarship

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 academic engagement through the Mindich Program in Engaged Scholarship, student leadership development programs, student professional development programs, and active citizenship efforts through volunteering in the Greater Boston community.  The Center also provides resource management, guidance on residential advising, and strategic planning for college-wide civic engagement efforts, leading collaborative programs such as the First-Year Day of Service, Public Service Recruiting Day, the Engaged Scholarship and Social Justice Research Conference, and the Public Interested Conference.
