The Center for Public and Nonprofit Management is now accepting proposals for its 2018 Public Administration Conference. This year’s theme is “A Return to ‘Governance in Dark Times’? Creating Spaces for Citizen Dialogue, Encouraging Engagement in Public Life, and Ensuring Government Transparency and Accountability.” The deadline to submit proposals is Dec. 15, 2017. For more information on the conference, including the full Call for Proposals, visit the CPNM website.
The 2015 textbook “National Service and Volunteerism: Achieving Impact in Our Community,” edited by former CPNM director Thomas Bryer, was published in paperback by Lexington Books earlier this year. The book is largely based on the research presented during the 2015 Public Administration Research Conference and includes contributions from School of Public Administration faculty and staff including Associate Lecturer Stephanie Krick, Associate Professor Jay Jurie and CPNM Assistant Director Maria-Elena Augustin.
