What does public service mean to you?

Public service is using one’s skills and resources to support and improve a larger community. In order to serve a community, you must first understand the needs and priorities of that community. At CSR, we’re able to use our training and expertise to gather scientifically valid data, which can then be used to shape programs and policies.
