Public Service Honor Society

Barney Frank with PSHS students 2016

Barney Frank (center) visited the Haas Center on February 10, 2016 to speak to students involved in the Public Service Leadership Program and Public Service Honor Society

Established in 2012, the Public Service Honor Society provides students an opportunity to reflect upon their public service experiences and the development of their respective civic leadership identities. The honor society is intended to recognize and celebrate seniors who have:

  • Demonstrated a commitment to their development as a civic leader through engagement in course work, research and public service-related endeavors;
  • Strived to implement and embody the Haas Center’s Principles of Ethical and Effective Service in their interactions with community partners;
  • Cultivated the knowledge, skills, values, and self- and community-awareness necessary to be effective civic leaders;
  • Contributed to campus, local, state, national or global communities through one or more public service pathways.

Students inducted into the honor society commit to:

  • Attending at least one Public Service Honor Society event and one Cardinal Careers event each quarter during senior year
  • Sharing their public service experiences with younger students
  • Remaining civically engaged during their senior year and after graduation
