"The McCarthy Center will urge students who pass our way to embrace passionately some mission in public service."

--Leo T. McCarthy, Founder


Come and visit us in our permanent space in Masonic 102-110!

The Leo T. McCarthy Center for Public Service and the Common Good is dedicated to inspiring and preparing students at USF to pursue lives and careers of ethical public service and the common good.

The McCarthy Center provides a forum for education, service and research in public policy-making and programs for the common good. It supports undergraduate and graduate academic programs, provides service learning, and government experiences for students and generates publishable research. A curriculum that blends rigorous intellectual training with fieldwork experience prepares students to articulate and promote the common good of all society's members through careers or service in government, non-profits or the private sector.
