Bartle Officially Named Dean of College of Public Affairs and Community Service
Omaha - The nationally recognized College of Public Affairs and Community Service (CPACS) at the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) is set to continue under the leadership of John Bartle, Ph.D., who officially takes over as dean of the college on Monday, April 1, after serving a year-and-a-half as interim dean.
Bartle took over as dean in 2011 after serving the previous five years as director of the School of Public Administration.
During his time as dean, Bartle has led the college to major milestones, including:
- National rankings from U.S. News & World Report for the Bachelor of General Studies online degree, School of Public Administration, School of Criminology/Criminal Justice and Grace Abbott School of Social Work
- The Aviation Institute earning the Loening Trophy as the best program in the nation in 2012.
- The approval of a new Bachelor of Science degree in Emergency Management
Bartle joined UNO nearly two decades ago in 1994 and has since represented UNO as an elected board member for the American Society for Public Administration, National Association of Schools of Public Affairs and Administration, as well as President of the Association for Budgeting and Financial Management. He was also elected as a Fellow of the National Academy of Public Administration and was a visiting professor at Sun Yat-Sen University in Guangzhou, China.
Bartle earned a Bachelor of Arts with honors from Swarthmore College in Pennsylvania, a Masters in Public Affairs degree from the Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs at the University of Texas and a Ph.D. in Public Policy and Management from the John Glenn School at The Ohio State University. Bartle’s research and teaching interests include public financial management, public budgeting and sustainable development. Prior to his academic work, he worked in city and state government in Minnesota.
The College of Public Affairs and Community Service was formed in 1972, soon after UNO joined the University of Nebraska system, as a response to civil unrest in the Omaha area. Over its 40-year history, CPACS has created a rich tradition of civic engagement and academic excellence.
