This document outlines a cooperative agreement between the Canadian Association of Programs in Public Administration (CAPPA) and the Network of Schools of Public Policy, Affairs, and Administration (NASPAA). CAPPA, formerly the Committee of Schools in Public Administration, was launched in 1972, and has been accrediting Canadian programs in public administration since 2007. It has the mission of improving the quality of teaching and research in public administration. NASPAA, established in 1970, has been accrediting American programs in public policy and administration since 1980, and non-US programs since 2011. NASPAA’s mission is to promote excellence in education and training for public service and to promote the ideal of public service. The associations have a long history of informal exchange and cooperation, both at the association level, and at the level of individual schools and faculty. The purpose of this MoU is to put in place some formal cooperative structures that will strengthen and sustain the relationship between the two associations and make progress towards achieving some of our shared goals.
