The University of Arkansas Clinton School of Public Service was established by the board of trustees of the University of Arkansas (UA) in Fayetteville (Washington County) with former senator David Pryor as its first dean. The school is the only school in the United States that offers a master’s degree in public service to prepare graduates for nonprofit, governmental, volunteer, or private sector work. It is located in the former Choctaw Station of Rock Island Railroad and is part of the Clinton Presidential Center and Park in Little Rock (Pulaski County). Classrooms are also located in the CALS Roberts Library in downtown Little Rock.
