Public Service Clinics

“It [The Evans School] is the premier place for this kind of work. Any public organization or nonprofit would benefit at any stage of its life from the work being done by the Public Service Clinics.” –Jeff Coats, Chalet Art Showcase Theater

Engage a Student Consultant Team

Public Service Clinics link the skills and services of second-year Master of Public Administration (MPA) students with the real-world needs of nonprofit and public agencies. For more than a decade, our students have produced program evaluations, strategic plans, policy analyses, and new program designs.

How It Works

During the last year of study, MPA students are required to complete a capstone project, which demonstrates mastery of analytic and organizational skills. Through the Public Service Clinics, student teams investigate a variety of research topics proposed by regional public and nonprofit agencies. The projects are completed over two academic quarters and work is supervised by experienced Evans School faculty.
