Master of Public Administration Career Panel  and  Pi Alpha Alpha Induction Ceremony

For more than three decades, hundreds of leaders in the public and private sectors have been trained through the curriculum formerly known as the Master of Science in Public Affairs program/

This year, the same rigorous curriculum has been renamed the Master of Public Administration (MPA), reflecting the continuous evolution of the program's excellence.

We are proud that our graduates and current students share a commitment to improving our communities locally, nationally, and globally.

On this special evening, we will be inspired by the achievements of a distinguished panel of alumni and the induction of our top current students into the prestigious Pi Alpha Alpha honor society.
