Please join us for a special evening to make sure the best public policy and governance education is accessible to all, regardless of one's economic circumstance…and for a birthday toast to remember!
From our beginning in 1961, the Evans School was founded on the principal of access to leadership roles in public service, regardless of one’s ability to pay for graduate education. Student fellowships are critical to our effort to preserve opportunities for the next generation of public, nonprofit, and philanthropic leaders—leaders who reflect our socio-economic, racial, and cultural diversity.
The annual student-organized Evans School Research Symposium provides graduate students a learning opportunity to bridge the gap between the academic and professional worlds through applied research.
This year's research topics included looking at the cost effectiveness of malaria vaccines in Zambia, morbidity and economic growth in developed and developing states, proposals to alleviate the health insurance gap in Oregon, and campaign finance regulatory reform. Student work was displayed on posters in the Denny Forum and the Parrington Commons, and three groups presented their research before an audience of faculty, staff, students, and the public: geoduck aquaculture in south Puget Sound, improving health and housing in South King County, and evaluating the foodborne illness risk of apple contamination.
The Evans School consistently ranks among the top public affairs programs. In U.S. News & World Report’s latest rankings, the Evans School placed in the top 10 programs nationwide (9th overall) and earned additional recognition for exceptional programming in nonprofit management (3rd), environmental policy and management (6th), public management and administration (11th), and public policy analysis (13th).
Our Executive Master of Public Administration (EMPA) is a program that meets the professional challenges and time constraints of midcareer professionals in the public, private, and nonprofit sectors. The Executive MPA is an accelerated degree program that combines theory with practice, allowing students to apply coursework directly to the organizational challenges they face.
Meghan Flaherty (MPA '15) is serving as a Community Economic Development Volunteer in Peru.
The UW reclaims its top spot in number of Peace Corps volunteers among large schools nationwide. The Evans School contributes to this success through our Peace Corps' Master's International (PCMI) track, which combines our Master of Public Administration (MPA) degree with two years of Peace Corps service and focuses on international development of nongovernmental organizations (NGOs).
