Despite the many challenges that the pandemic presented, the School of Public Administration (SPA) continued to thrive.
“In response, SPA shifted courses to virtual platforms and diligently worked to show compassion to and engagement with our students,” says Dr. Craig Maher, Director of the School. “When we had to teach on campus, for instance, students taking flight instruction, we followed safety protocols to ensure the safety of students and instructors.”
In fact, it was a great year for the School with many accomplishments, national rankings, and outstanding awards.
Overall, the UNO School of Public Administration received high rankings, tied at No. 28 in the nation. Specialties within SPA were also highly ranked, including: Public Finance & Budgeting No. 8, Local Government Management No. 11, Nonprofit Management No. 12, and Public Management & Leadership No. 24.
