Welcome to the Center for Public and Nonprofit Management in the School of Public Administration at the University of Central Florida. The center aims to achieve a high "Return on Engagement" and community impact through research, teaching and service. Professors and students associated with the center conduct research in four areas: democracy and civic engagement, sustainability, collaborative governance, and diversity and inclusiveness. We also host special projects, including Walking School Bus, AmeriCorps VISTA and certification programs for the international public administration community.

We invite you to explore our website to learn more about our success in achieving community impact through research, teaching and service.
