The Bob Graham Center for Public Service is training the next generation of public and private sector leaders for our state and nation. Our students RISE ABOVE. They are creative thinkers who are authentically optimistic about the future.

Our mission: To create a community of students, scholars and citizens who share a commitment to renewing the values, knowledge and skills of engaged citizenship. 

Join us as we embark on a bold fundraising campaign to raise $10 million to ensure that the Bob Graham Center can continue its work connecting extraordinary students with extraordinary opportunities that enhance the academic experience and professional prospects.
