Scott Fritzen joined the faculty of the Evans School in mid-2015. Prior to joining Evans, Fritzen served in various capacities at New York University - as Associate Provost at NYU's portal campus in Shanghai, and Associate Dean and Interim Dean at NYU's Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service. He also served for a dozen years as a faculty member and as Vice Dean (Academic Affairs) at the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy (National University of Singapore). He holds a PhD in Public and International Affairs and a Master in Public Affairs and Urban and Regional Planning from the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, Princeton University.

Fritzen’s research focuses on the comparative analysis of anti-corruption and decentralization strategies in Asia, and the globalization of public policy education. He is the coauthor of The Public Policy Primer: Managing the Policy Process (2017) and The Lee Kuan Yew School: Building a Global Policy School in Asia (2012), and coeditor of The Handbook of Public Policy (2012) and Transforming Asian Governance (2009). He serves on the editorial board of Policy & Society, Journal of Comparative Policy Analysis and Policy Design and Practice.

Fritzen's consulting practice in Asia has included numerous team-leader assignments for public sector clients throughout Asia, and he speaks several Asian languages, and German, proficiently. He was the first American in the postwar era designated a Fulbright Fellow for Vietnam.
