The Rangel Center provides various types of support to students enrolled in CCNY's Master's in Public Administration (MPA) program, which prepares students, particularly those traditionally underrepresented in public service, for management jobs in government agencies and nonprofit organizations. The Center's goal is to provide CCNY students who are committed to service with the same rich academic experience that students take for granted at better financed, private institutions.
The Rangel Center provides scholarships and tuition assistance to MPA students. Over the past decade, the Center's support has made graduate education possible for dozens of students who could not otherwise afford it. Much of the support is tied to service in management, communications, budgeting and policy analysis. Read more.
The Center provides a career development seminar, one-on-one career consultations, networking events, and visits from recruiters at public agencies and nonprofit organizations. Our goal is to help students construct a professional path that aligns with their values, strengths, and interests, so they can maximize the social impact of their work. Read more.
The Center sponsors policy briefings by public leaders, panel discussions with social movement leaders, trainings, and other extracurricular activities to enrich MPA students' education. Past events have featured President Obama's chief economic adviser, the Director of the National Governors Association, and the founder of Be Social Change. Read more.
