Evans School Remains Among Best in the Nation

U.S. News & World Report’s 2023 Best Graduate Schools places the Evans School of Public Policy & Governance among the best schools in the nation and the world. The Evans School ranked third among public affairs graduate programs overall, and second among public institutions. 

Three of our specializations were also ranked in the top ten: Environmental Policy (2), Nonprofit Management (5), and Public Finance & Budgeting (8).  

Evans School Dean Jodi Sandfort noted: “The continued national recognition of the Evans school is a recognition of our leadership.  Our focus upon democratizing public policy and inspiring public service is being recognized as the next generation of strategies for public policy education.  Our students benefit from our engagement with important questions and our support for innovating new approaches to policy and management.  Through these strategies, we are working to address the inequities built into our institutions and spark a shared belief in the sacred work of public service.” 

These rankings are released annually and are based on reputation and respect among peer institutions.
