Read about PPIA Summer Public Service Weekends

Public Service Weekends

PPIA’s mission and overall focus is to increase the participation and inclusion of traditionally underrepresented groups at the highest level of public sector leadership. NASPAA, the membership association of graduate programs in public administration, public policy, and public affairs, supports these goals and shares PPIA’s vision in creating a new generation of diverse students to enter graduate programs and pursue careers in public service.  PPIA is thrilled to announce the Public Service Weekends being planned in 2017 to introduce more students to the broad range of opportunities available in the field of public service.
