Master of Public Administration Program General Fund
The MPA General Fund provides a broad range of support and provides the greatest flexibility to the MPA program. Recently, the trust has paid for a subscription to the Electronic Hallway, an electronic center for case-based teaching; expenses related to admissions interviews; honoraria for seminar speakers; and computer software for the student computer lab.
As revenue from the state has decreased, private support makes a critical difference in our ability to provide the best educational opportunities for the students who are our future public service leaders.
