Alumni Profile

  • Emma Cleveland, MPA '20

    Having professors like Dave Weimer and Greg Nemet consistently challenge me—asking questions, throwing curve balls into assignments, and making us do some serious critical thinking—has really helped me become a more confident employee.

Career News

  • Kelsey Maria Gordon, MPA

    Before I started the program, my career goals were focused on working in or with a school district or advocacy organization to create and implement community-based, just policies. After taking Public Management with Professor Tana Johnson and Education Policy in Context and Action with Professor Annalee Good, I am considering work focused on program evaluation and participatory action research.
