New York, NY (PRWEB) July 17, 2008
The City College of New York is proud to house the Charles B. Rangel Center for Public Service, named after one of America's most distinguished public servants. The Center will help prepare students in our new bachelors and masters programs in public administration - particularly underrepresented minority students - for leadership positions in public service. It will enrich their preparation by providing scholarship, internship and research opportunities as well as hosting conferences on best practices in bring underrepresented groups into public service and other topics.
The Charles B. Rangel Library, centered on Congressman Rangel's archives from more than 40 years in public service, will be an important center for scholarship. In the long tradition of university centers like the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University, the Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs at The University of Texas and the Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy at The University of Michigan, the Rangel Center will provide our students with an important, inspirational role model and serve as a national center for promoting greater diversity in public service.
