To support the Bob Graham Center for Public Service's pioneering approach to prepare University of Florida students to be informed, skilled and engaged citizens
The Bob Graham Center for Public Service is a community of students, scholars and citizens who share a commitment to training the next generation of public and private sector leaders for Florida, the United States and the international community.
Sen. Graham founded the Center as a means of going beyond the classroom and giving students insight into the nuts and bolts of political leadership. It's part of his lifelong dedication to the idea that citizens need a firm grounding in democratic government to discharge their rights and responsibilities, regardless of which field a Bob Graham Center student chooses for a career, be it politics, business, the arts or the sciences.
