Charles B. Rangel Center for Public Service

Charles B. Rangel Center for Public Service


The Rangel Center provides various types of support to students enrolled in CCNY’s Master's Program in Public Administration, 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.


CCNY Begins Creating Archive

After may years of planning, CCNY and the Rangel Center have begun the process of cataloging and preserving the first of Congressman Rangel's congressional papers.  Those documents will form the foundation of an important archive of congressional papers that users will eventually access  through the Division of Archives and Special Collections at the CCNY Library. The Rangel Center has retained experts at the Winthrop Group to ensure the documents are preserved and cataloged to be available to the CCNY community and scholars around the world for generations to come.  Eventually parts of this generous gift from Congressman Rangel will be digitized and available online.  

Center Relocates to New Offices

The Rangel Center moved to the new Public Management Center located on the ground floor of Shepard Hall.  The new space brings together for the first time a number of programs focused on preparing young people for public service. The new facility features student work space, a smart classroom, as well as space for meetings and seminars.

Rangel Center Sponsors Workshop

On December 3rd, The Rangel Center, together with the Master's Program in Public Administration and the Zahn Innovation Center, sponsored a workshop on performance measurement in nonprofit organizations. The program was part of a series designed to share campus expertise and connections with students and the community at large.  The workshop featured a panel of experts moderated by MPA Professor George Mitchell.  The event was broadcast online.
