Partner Engagement

Partner Engagment

The Office of Community Engagement explores ways to provide professional and educational opportunities for our students and community partners by creatively drawing on our assets.

Become a Field Service Partner

Field service promotes the Clinton School vision by emphasizing the “practice” of public service by placing students in challenging environments in which they work with community leaders to help build healthy, engaged, and vibrant communities, both in Arkansas and around the world. We are currently accepting field service project proposals from community partners domestically and from around the globe. Learn more about becoming a Clinton School Field Service Partner.

Free Professional Development Workshops

The Office of Community Engagement is proud to launch our Free Professional Development Workshops. These workshops are an attempt to utilize the vast array of skills and talents of our alumni as resources for our community partners. We hope that this new initiative will provide rich engagement opportunities among community partners and non-profit leaders, and Clinton School of Public Service students and alumni. If you have questions or are looking for more extensive partner support, please contact Hilary Trudell at or (501) 683-5392.
