Message from the Director
Welcome to CLU's Master of Public Policy and Administration program.
We are proud of our thriving program, especially the many alums that have gone on to lead distinguished careers in the public, private and nonprofit sectors.
The MPPA program is designed to meet the educational needs of management professionals. Our faculty, with a service orientation, is dedicated to the education of the whole person. Our student body is excellent and diversified, composed primarily of individuals who are working in various private, public or nonprofit organizations.
The basic purpose of the graduate program in public policy and administration is to provide a broad-based education for individuals who wish to pursue careers in administration or policy-making in a variety of public service positions. Program emphasis is on state and local policy issues.
The program prepares students for leadership, critical and ethical thought, and service in the public and nonprofit sectors. The program seeks to develop and nurture students for employment as managers and policy experts committed to effective, ethical, reflective and socially relevant service to the community.
