New MPA Leadership

As of July 1, Dr. Sheldon Gen will be taking over as unit head (now Program Director) of the Public Administration Program.  (Note: Since we are now part of the School of Public Affairs and Civic Engagement, we are no longer officially a department and our head is no longer a chair.)

As I have been Program Director, then Department Chair, and now Program Director again for 15 years (5 complete terms), we have been planning for this succession transition for some time, to take place after Dr. Gen received tenure and promotion.  That time has now arrived.   I have immensely enjoyed serving as unit head during this period but of course it is always a good thing to have new leaders and new leadership.  I know Sheldon will do an excellent job and I am looking forward to working with him in this new capacity.

I will, of course, still be in Public Administration teaching and doing research and am looking forward to being able to spend more time doing both of those activities.   Thank you for your support—our students and alums are what has always made this job so special!  Along with our outstanding faculty, you are just a great group of people and I have loved working with each and every one of you.
