Mission Statement

New Hampshire Senator Warren B. Rudman was widely admired for his integrity and willingness to work with politicians across the aisle in order to advance the public interest. In lending his name to the Warren B. Rudman Center for Justice, Leadership & Public Service, Senator Rudman stated that he could “think of no greater mission than to train our next generation of leaders to seek justice, serve their country, and work together for the common good.” The Warren B. Rudman Center for Justice, Leadership & Public Service operationalizes this mission by providing curricular, programmatic, experiential, and financial support for students interested in public service legal careers. The Rudman Center also hosts a Public Forum Series that brings global policy leaders to campus and enables meaningful community involvement in the most pressing policy issues of our time.
