The Clinton School of Public Service was the first in the U.S. to offer a Master of Public Service (MPS) program. While this offering is unique, the school competes for students who are considering MPA, MPH, and MPP degrees. Our recommendation: a more emphatic brand voice and outcome-focused messages to build awareness as recruitment scaled up.
With a core idea of equipping students for “the tough work of on-the-ground change,” we developed a brand narrative and supporting messaging that brought greater storytelling energy to a distinctive set of program features and an impressive alumni network. The Clinton School has seen a 30 percent increase in applications and is reaching future leaders whose service will prove invaluable on a national and global scale.

The Clinton School’s Master of Public Service degree is grounded in an unshakeable belief: our common humanity is a powerful force for transformative, sustainable change.
Our school’s namesake, President Bill Clinton, has always believed that even in the most contentious, polarizing times, people can find common ground and work together to create enduring solutions.
The first Master of Public Service degree in the nation, the MPS is an action oriented program focused on putting people first, and equipping students for the tough work of participatory, on the ground change.
