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.
Public Administration Quarterly has published “Archeology of Exclusion: Counter-Mapping Sites of Exclusion and Oppression in the Administrative State Using GIS” by doctoral student Esteban Santis. The article explores the use of geographic information systems to map areas of exclusion and oppression, and includes a case study of the Trayvon Martin case. This is the first published article written solely by Santis.
