Charles B. Rangel Center for Public Service
The Rangel Center provides various types of support to students enrolled in CCNY’s Public Service Management Program, a master's program that prepares students, many from groups traditionally underrepresented in public service, for management jobs in government agencies and nonprofit organizations. Center graduates and students have worked for the White House, the Harlem Children's Zone, the Council on State Governments and the New York City Council.
The Center also supports an archive of important Congressional papers, the core of which will be the documents and other materials donated by Congressman Charles B. Rangel.
Fundamental to the Honorable Charles B. Rangel's lifelong service to the nation is a belief that government in the U.S. must mirror the rich tapestry of cultures, faiths, and ethnicities that make us who we are as a country. We at the City College of New York and the Charles B. Rangel Center for Public Service are proud to share that vision of our country and to dedicate our efforts to help make this a worthy mission a reality.
