The Public Policy and International Affairs Program (PPIA)'s mission and overall focus are to increase the participation and inclusion of traditionally underrepresented groups at the highest level of public sector leadership. NASPAA, 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 continue hosting Public Service Weekends in 2019 to introduce more students to the broad range of opportunities available in the field of public service.
