In a contemporary context, any program that seeks to prepare graduate students for careers in public administration must focus on administrative action and public policymaking in the context of depleting resources, increasing populations, and the ubiquitous, drastic effects of climate change. Regardless of the career paths students take in public administration, our program must instill awareness of these realities in order to produce effective decisionmakers. 

This section of the MPA program’s website is dedicated to highlighting everything that exemplifies our commitment to sustainability. This section emphasizes the accomplishments of our faculty in this area of study, curricular offerings, publication of our faculty in this area of research, and other activities aimed at enhancing sustainability awareness and knowledge, not only to avoid depletion of natural resources, but to encourage practices that regenerate them.
