Steve Thompson, assistant vice president with the UT Institute for Public Service, was recently elected vice president and president-elect of the Southern Consortium of University Public Service Organizations. Thompson was elected to the board position at the association’s annual conference at the University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill.
SCUPSO is made up of university public service organizations and schools of government. The group promotes collaboration among directors, faculty, and staff of university-based public service institutes and centers. Members, who come from colleges around the country, focus on common challenges and opportunities related to their organizations, as well as on ideas for helping local, state, and nonprofit clients address current policy issues.
The organization has more than twenty-five member universities. The Institute for Public Service has been a member of SCUPSO since the consortium’s inception in 1979.
