Center for Public Service (CPS)

Community Service with CPSThe Center for Public Service (CPS) at Anderson University is an honors program for outstanding students interested in public service. The program began during the 1971-72 school year as an avenue to encourage students to focus their skills toward public service and address pressing societal needs. The major aim of the program is to bridge the gap between formal education and career for students showing a strong commitment to public service. CPS provides valuable learning opportunities through the university’s relationship with public service professionals.

Through on-campus and off-campus experiences, students prepare for careers directly meeting critical societal needs in such areas as law, education, government, research and applied sciences, medicine, social services, communication arts, and Christian service.
