The College of Public Service & Community Solutions (formerly the College of Public Programs) is one of the 24 independent school units of Arizona State University. It is located at ASU's Downtown Phoenix Campus in Arizona. Founded in 1979, the college awards bachelors, masters, and doctoral degrees and is organized into four schools[1] and 17 research centers.[2] The programs are divided amongst the School of Social Work, the School of Criminology and Criminal Justice, the School of Public Affairs and the School of Community Resources and Development.

History[edit]

The College of Public Programs was founded at Arizona State University's Tempe campus on April 21, 1979.[3] The college's establishment was part of the university's reorganization of several departments within other colleges. Effective July 1, 1979, the College of Public Programs housed five academic units:

  • The Center for Criminal Justice (Now the School of Criminology & Criminal Justice)
  • The Center for Public Affairs (Now the School of Public Affairs)
  • The Department of Communication (Now the Hugh Downs School of Human Communication)
  • The Department of Journalism and Telecommunications (Now the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication)
  • The Department of Leisure Studies (Now the School of Community Resources and Development)

In 2006, the College of Public Programs relocated from Wilson Hall[4] on the university's Tempe campus to Arizona State University's newly planned Downtown Phoenix campus. On January 1, 2015, The College of Public Programs officially renamed itself to the College of Public Service & Community Solutions.[5]

ASU's College of Public Service & Community Solutions has a number of distinguished divisions and research centers, including the Lodestar Center for Philanthropy and Nonprofit Innovation,[6] the Morrison Institute for Public Policy[7] and the Southwest Interdisciplinary Research Center.[8]

School of Community Resources and Development

The School of Community Resources & Development (SCRD) at Arizona State University offers undergraduate, graduate and doctoral programs in nonprofit leadership and management, parks and recreation management, tourism development and management, and more.

The early recreation program at Arizona State University was developed and housed in the Department of Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance.[9] In 1979, the program was invited to join the new College of Public Programs, where it became the Department of Leisure Studies. During the 1980s, both the tourism and nonprofit management academic areas were added to the department's traditional focus on parks and recreation. The department changed its name to the Department of Recreation Management and Tourism in 1994. In July 2004, the department was elevated to school status and renamed the School of Community Resources and Development.
