FAS Standing Committee for Public Service

The FAS Standing Committee on Public Service is comprised of several members of the faculty as well as student representatives. The Committee considers the role of volunteer programs in the educational life of students. The Committee uses meetings to examine and discuss issues within the area of public service. In recent years, the committee has devoted extensive time to developing ways to bridge students’ academic and public service experiences.
