LITTLE ROCK - The University of Arkansas Clinton School of Public Service will enroll its largest class ever this fall when 50 students enter the school's Master of Public Service degree program.
The students represent 20 states and seven countries including Colombia, Greece, India, Jamaica, Rwanda, Saudi Arabia and Uganda. The new students come to the school with a wide range of backgrounds and experiences, including service with organizations such as Peace Corps, AmeriCorps and Teach for America.
"In our admissions process, we look for students who have excelled both in and out of the classroom," said Clinton School Dean Skip Rutherford.
The Clinton School has grown steadily since it enrolled 16 students in its inaugural class in 2004. By far the largest class in Clinton School history, the 50 new students will join 36 second-year students to give the school a total enrollment of 86 students across two classes.
