UC Berkeley is revitalizing a historic heart of student life: Lower Sproul Plaza. As part of this important project, Eshleman Hall (the current home of the Public Service Center) will be razed and replaced with a more spacious building where student leaders will work together in new, flexible spaces designed for collaboration. The Center's new office will span an entire 2nd floor in the new Eshleman Hall, and will connect to a elevated walk way to the Martin Luther King Jr. Student Center. In its new home, the Center will showcase the University’s commitment to public service and tell the story of student, faculty, and alumni engagement around the Bay Area and across the globe. When the building opens in 2015, our goal is to have endowed a Center Faculty Director as well as a minimum of 100 need-based scholarships for student leaders of public service.
“UC Berkeley is about excellence in all that we do, including serving the greater good. The new Lower Sproul will place public service —very literally — at the heart of campus life.”
— Jonathan Poullard, Dean of Students
