Just a little bit of bragging about our faculty, staff, students and alumni.
Doctor of Public Administration student Lyndsay Bates has been selected as a 2018 ASPA Founders Fellow . The 2018 class of fellows is comprised of 25 graduate students and new professionals from around the country. The competitive fellowship, launched by the American Society of Public Administration in 2006, was created to support the next generation of public service leaders through a series of professional development opportunities. The fellowship will enable Bates to attend ASPA’s annual conference this March in Denver, CO where she’ll present her research. Additionally, fellows receive a year-long mentorship with a seasoned practitioner or senior scholar and have access to tailored professional development webinars that address their specific educational and professional goals.
