• Year End Review

    As 2014 comes to a close, it’s a good time to look back at everything you have achieved and start planning ahead for the year to come. Here at the Center for Public Service we took a look at articles that piqued readers’ interests in 2014. Throughout 2014 we covered topics from autism to women in public service, from nonviolence to trends in education. We identified faculty and students who were making a difference in the public service field and even featured public servants who have made strides in government, such as Karla Drenner, and public figures like Bernice King, who are spreading awareness about nonviolence. In 2014 we also featured some campaigns to raise awareness about public service programs and people working in public service such as the “Public Service Stars” campaign and “Environmental Women of the World” series. 

    Below are some topics and articles that grabbed our readers’ interests in 2014 and others that we have selected to feature in our year-end wrap up. We invite you to take a look at some of the stories we’ve published and to come back again next year as we continue to bring you topics and information related to the public service field, and stories on faculty and students making strides in the field of public service.
