The Warren B. Rudman Center for Justice, Leadership and Public Service

2019 Rudman Fellows

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 and 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 and Public Service operationalizes this charge by providing programmatic and financial support for students interested in exploring careers in public service while supporting public programming and academic inquiry that align with its mission.
