Celebrated the first week of May since 1985, Public Service Recognition Week (PSRW) is a national week-long celebration to honor those who serve our communities as federal, state, county and local government employees. The Public Policy & Management Center, has several activities planned to honor and celebrate our partners in public service.
Public Policy and Management Center staff will divide into special ops teams to infiltrate Wichita's public service arenas with yummy treats of thanks. Operation Donut Drop is our way of thanking our incredible partners who make our work possible throughout the year.
Our graduate assistants will share with students at Enders Open Magnet Elementary School about public service and all the different ways it affects their lives. We love that Enders emphasizes important skills like leadership and social responsibility that turn students into responsible, engaged citizens!
The Public Policy and Management Center will host a WSU Project Wichita focus group for campus staff, faculty and students to share their vision for the Wichita area's next 10 years. Right now, Project Wichita focus groups are being hosted across the city, and we want to celebrate our public servants right here on campus by gathering their thoughts and ideas.
