Department of Public Administration and Policy
The Department of Public Administration and Policy at Rockefeller College provides graduate and undergraduate students the skills and insights necessary to participate in the management of public and nonprofit organizations and the creation of public policy.
We provide pre-service and mid-career students with a comprehensive core curriculum in public affairs and a diverse selection of electives to further tailor their training and prepare them to solve difficult administrative and policy problems in local, state, national and global communities. Our curriculum emphasizes the development of technical and managerial skills toward the responsible and ethical uses of discretion in the pursuit of exemplary personal and organizational performance.
Our academic and professional faculty are accomplished researchers and practitioners, draw on many years of experience, produce high quality academic and professional research, and address significant issues in public management and policy.
