After admission into CPS, a program group is assembled for each Fellow. This group includes an on-campus advisory Fellow — a faculty member from the Fellow’s academic department — and an off-campus advisory Fellow — a public service professional who is currently involved in an area that interests the student. An advisor can play a key role in opening doors to internships, conferences, seminars, and other off-campus learning experiences that significantly contribute to the Fellow’s career preparation. Formal meetings are scheduled at least once a semester for each Fellow’s program group. CPS sponsors monthly luncheons with a variety of featured speakers, including community leaders, off-campus advisory Fellows, service organization representatives, and faculty members. These speakers address a broad range of public-service issues, emphasizing the needs and opportunities that exist.
