2011 Graduation and Year- end Reception!

The Department of Public Administration ended the year with pre-commencement “hooding” of the 2010-2011 MPA graduates and recognition of newly inducted members of Pi Alpha Alpha, the national public administration honorary society.    First, the Pi Alpha Alpha induction…here are the newest members of our Chapter.

We “hooded” our graduates and congratulated them and their families.   Here are just a few of those pictures– see more at our Flickr site!

We presented our Community Service Award to Assistant City Manager Brian Moura of San Carlos and our Alum of the Year Award to Bonnie Hough (MPA 1985), Managing Attorney of the Center for Families, Children and the Courts / Administrative Office of the Courts.   We said goodbye to our Dean, Joel Kassiola, who is going back to the faculty to teach full-time after the College of Behavioral and Social Sciences has been split up into other colleges. Congratulations to all of our graduates,  new Pi Alpha Alpha members and award recipients!

We also said goodbye to Dr. Eric Zeemering, leaving use for another position and to Dr. Carol Edlund, who is retiring after 20 years of teaching with us.

Good luck to everyone– keep in touch!
