Because of Our Community


We are proud to recognize the Evans School community for its investment, commitment, and support throughout the 2020-21 academic year. By sharing their gifts – whether they be financial or of time and expertise – our community has demonstrated its commitment to our work as we build an engine for change. Together – we will address the inequities built in our public institutions and spark a shared belief in the sacred work of public service.

During an already challenging year, our community provided fellowships to more than one-third of students enrolled in Evans School’s Executive MPA, MPA, and PhD programs. And, 70 donors demonstrated their commitment to equity by contributing more than $8,000 to the Evans School’s newly established Anti-Racism and Inclusion Fund.

Ranked second among public institutions and fourth overall, the Evans School is proud of our global reputation. The tremendous impact of our faculty, students, alumni, and supporters have helped us maintain our top-10 ranking for five years.

Though the 2020-21 academic year was not what this year’s graduating class expected, 172 Executive MPA, MPA, and PhD graduates are entering the workforce world-ready to make an impact. We look forward to how the Class of 2021 will carry the Evans School’s mission forward as alumni in public, private, and nonprofit organizations throughout our region – and beyond. Congratulations graduates, and thank you to the Evans School community for helping to shape their experience!


The Evans School thrives on the power of its relationships. Together, we create the ideas, expertise, and leadership that guide government agencies, nonprofit organizations, and private companies around the country and throughout the world in the direction of justice.
