NASPAA & CAPPA Join ICPP6 in Toronto

NASPAA was honored to join the Canadian Association of Programs in Public Administration (CAPPA) to discuss accreditation on Monday, June 26, 2023 at the Policy Leaders event of the 6th International Conference on Public Policy (ICPP6) in Toronto.

Organized by the International Public Policy Association (IPPA), ICPP6 was hosted by the Toronto Metropolitan University's Faculty of Arts and Public Policy graduate studies programs in the University's premises in downtown Toronto from June 27 to 29, 2023, with a Pre-Conference on June 26

As part of Pre-Conference activities, Martha Bohrt, NASPAA Chief Accreditation Officer, and Geneviève Tellier, President of the CAPPA Accreditation Board, joined the Policy Leaders event to provide updates and trends in accreditation. Participants included faculty and administrators from academic institutions from across the globe. Some of the topics covered included the value of accreditation; the increasing interest in undergraduate degrees to prepare students for graduate public policy programs; and the changing skills needed to succeed as a public policy professional.
