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.
