The Public Service Endowment Grant (PSEG) is intended to enhance the public service mission of the University. It is an internal University source of funds set aside to deliver public services through research and special projects. For the purposes of this program, public service will be defined as "having to do with the outreach of the University to society at large, extending the research and engagement resources of the campus to individuals and groups who are not part of the academic community while bringing an academic institution's special competence to bear on the solution of society's problems. It can take place on or off campus and can be related to either the governmental or private sectors of our national life. The emphasis on public service is in converting knowledge into readily usable forms for immediate applications."
