“The point of a university and the point of building a community is to bring people together. And that was the goal of the Community Projects Office.” So recalls John Gage, the first student coordinator in 1967 of what was later renamed Cal Corps and then the Public Service Center. The PSC connects students, faculty, and community members to work together in creating a more just and equitable world. Through programs that work with more than 250 community partners, there are many ways that Cal students get involved, including direct service, mentoring, grassroots organizing, engaged scholarship, research, political advocacy, and activism. Through the PSC, Cal students find their passion, their purpose, and their voices as leaders.
