Student Profiles

  • Jonathan Harper, MPA

    As a public school teacher, I became frustrated with how much policy constrained my work in the classroom and decided to work toward giving teachers a voice to advocate for their students’ needs. I want to work to close the divide between best practices and actual practices in the field of education.

Alumni Profiles

    Ruanda McFerren (MPA/MS ’18)

    On a near daily basis, I am in meetings that relate to a real-world version of grad school group work. Whether it is assisting in development of a new citywide housing policy, compiling information on digital innovations, or coming up with ideas for #cityhallselfie day, much of the work I’m engaged in involves a deep level of communication and collaboration.
