The Bob Graham Center for Public Service provides University of Florida undergraduate students with an outstanding opportunity to combine academic coursework and credentials with a living curriculum of internships, real-world case studies and guest lectures. The mission is simple: to encourage this generation of students to become the next generation of public servants. The center offers several ways for students to get involved:
You are not required to minor in public leadership to be involved at the Bob Graham Center. The center also offers a variety of research opportunities for undergraduate students.
The Center is affiliated with multiple student groups with a focus on public leadership and civic engagement. Additionally, the Bob Graham Center has a student advisory council, The Public Service Council which assists the center with projects, promotions and other assignments.
The Public Leadership Minor offered by the Bob Graham Center for Public Service is an interdisciplinary program for undergraduates interested in careers in the public and private sectors.
The Bob Graham Center for Public Service at the University of Florida offers the Tallahassee Semester Internship program each spring term to coincide with Florida's legislative session and the Local Government Internship each summer.
The Bob Graham Center for Public Service and the UF Division of Student Affairs invite UF students to propose projects that will enrich our campus and our Florida communities. These projects can take many forms, but they must be collaborative, innovative and have achievable objectives. The most promising projects are awarded $5,000 to pursue implementation.
