who we are

Meet the Staff

Seven professional staff members and several student staff members manage daily operations at the Priscilla King Gray Public Service Center.

Many of the PKG Center programs were begun and continue to function as student initiatives under student leadership. Our dedicated student staff program coordinators work in conjunction with our professional staff members to develop and lead our various service opportunities. Student staff members develop skills in critical thinking, program management and leadership, while contributing towards meaningful public service.

Changes and growth in programs and initiatives, combined with a steady graduation rate create many opportunities for new student staff. For more information on current openings, we encourage interested students to visit our jobs page.
