As the nation’s first graduate school to offer a Master of Public Service degree, the University of Arkansas Clinton School of Public Service encourages participation in the National Day of Service on Monday, January 16, to honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Service is a core principle of the Clinton School, where students have completed more than 750 public service projects in Arkansas, the United States, and around the world. Our field service component places our students in challenging environments where they work with local leaders to build engaged and vibrant communities.
