At the UCF Center for Public and Nonprofit Management, our goal is to support the research interests of faculty and students, as well as the research needs of the community. Our sponsored research focuses on policy and management, but our faculty expertise is rich and varied. We also lead public service projects and offer unique, holistic training and technical assistance projects to build nonprofit organizational capacity. Through research and community engagement, our center improves policy and governance in partnership with communities from Central Florida and worldwide.
Professor Tom Liou has been named a recipient of the 2018 UCF Luminary Awards, which highlight the research, creative work and scholarship of faculty members across the university. SPA Director Naim Kapucu received this award in 2017.
