‌‌On 12th May 2014, the 20th anniversary of the death of the Labour Party Leader, the Rt Hon. John Smith Q.C., M.P., Baroness Smith of Gilmorehill announced the creation of a new Centre to “promote public service as a noble vocation” and provide a lasting, fitting and meaningful tribute to the life and work of John Smith.

The Centre sits within the School of Social & Political Sciences at the University of Glasgow and works in partnership with other departments to act as a focus for advocacy, debate and insight into public service, with the ambition of attracting more young people to contribute to public life and restoring the reputation of the role of public servants.
