A Center with a Mission

The Center for Public Service at Tulane University was established in 2006 as part of the University’s Renewal Plan, instituted after Hurricane Katrina. The Center supports a University curriculum and research agenda by uniting academics and action, classroom and communities through which students, faculty, and community partners dedicate themselves to the transformation of civic life.

Since 2006, Tulane students have contributed 2.5 million hours to community engagement initiatives in New Orleans and around the world.

The Princeton Review ranked Tulane University as the #1 Most Engaged in Community Service for 2017, 2018, 2020 and 2021. U.S. News & World Report ranked Tulane University #3 in Service-learning for 2021.

Tulane University and CPS are the administrative home for the International Association for Research on Service-learning and Community Engagement.

The Center for Public Service is partnered with over 600 agencies in the New Orleans area.

Tulane University is a member of Campus Compact, The Research University Civic Engagement Network, Imagining America, and the Gulf South Summit.
