Christina Corodimas '99 has been named a member of the second class to begin the Master of Public Service degree program at The University of Arkansas's Clinton School of Public Service in Little Rock.
Corodimas, who hails from West Chazy, N.Y., has spent the past year in Oakland, Calif., with The Working Group, producers of the PBS series “Not In Our Town,” using media as an organizational tool to prevent and respond to hate violence.
After graduating from William Smith College, she joined the AmeriCorps-VISTA program with Washington Reading Corps. Following her term of service with AmeriCorps, she worked for the Corporation for National and Community Service as an AmeriCorps recruitment and outreach coordinator for five years.
She will be one of 22 new students who will begin their degree program later this month. The class members bring backgrounds in non-profit, governmental, volunteer and private-sector service work.
“We are pleased to welcome this talented, experienced group of new students to the UA Clinton School,” said Skip Rutherford, dean of the presidential graduate school. “They represent all walks of life, from as far away as Africa and East Asia. Our unique curriculum, guest lecturers and faculty have allowed us to attract many types of students to study here.”
The Clinton School of Public Service is an independent entity of the University of Arkansas System, working in collaboration with the UA for Medical Sciences, the UA at Fayetteville and the UA at Little Rock. For details, visit ClintonSchool.
