The incoming class of students for the 2017 academic year will be historic. This year the number of applicants for the MPA program was a 12% increase on last year’s large application pool. We saw applicants from cities as far away as Miami Springs, Florida and Bangalore, India. The trend of a younger skewing cohort continues this year and it is inspiring to see the call to public service breaking through the noise and distractions of our society.
We wanted to give a special thank you to many of our alums who have been so supportive of our recruiting efforts through personal connections with prospective students and through engaging in a series of live webcasts discussing many different aspects of public service. Thank you for your continuing support.
