UNO Public Administration Professor Elected a Fellow for NAPA
Omaha - John Bartle, director of the School of Public Administration at the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO), has been elected a Fellow of the National Academy of Public Administration (NAPA). He will be inducted Thursday, Nov. 18, at the academy's fall meeting in Washington, D.C.
An independent, non-partisan, nonprofit corporation chartered by the U. S. Congress, NAPA provides trusted advice to government agencies on issues of governance and public management. Under its congressional charter, the academy is charged with advancing the effectiveness of government at all levels--federal, state and local. In addition to providing insight and experience as they oversee the organization projects, the Fellows are also NAPA’s primary vehicle for addressing emerging issues and contributing to the intellectual and popular discourse on government.
Bartle is past chair of the Association for Budgeting and Financial Management, and recently completed terms on the governing bodies of the American Society for Public Administration (ASPA), and the National Association of Schools of Public Affairs and Administration (NASPAA). He is also a part-time professor at the Center for Public Administration at Zhongshan (Sun Yat-Sen) University in Guangzhou, China.
