Dean Alison Cullen

As we begin the 2019-20 academic year, I would like to express my optimism about the year ahead. I am honored and humbled to have been selected to serve as interim dean of the Evans School, and I look forward to continuing Dean Archibald’s efforts to advance and sustain the Evans School as one of the nation’s leading public affairs institutions. 

I joined the Evans School faculty in 1995. After 24 years, my passion for our great school is reinforced by my excitement to serve as interim dean in a critical period for scholarship and action in the public and nonprofit sectors. The Evans School has a proud history of excellence in providing evidence-based solutions to societal challenges, and an inspiring future rising from a passionate call for justice, equity and inclusion in public policy and governance.  

For more than 50 years, members of the Evans School community have been learning from one another how to approach public policy analysis and management in a rational, efficient, and equitable manner. We are committed to finding real solutions for real problems, and we know that doing so requires thinking differently and collaborating across disciplines in unprecedented ways. I invite you to explore this website and learn more about our people, our programs, and our passion.
