PA conducts a mandatory orientation session for new students entering in
both the fall and spring semesters. At the orientation you will be
informed about general policies and procedures of your program, be
introduced to faculty and learn about the different concentrations, and
have a chance to interact with students from PASA, the Public
Administration Students Association.
My graduate experience in the UIC Department of Public Administration prepared me for my role in higher education as well as equipped me with the tools necessary to lead change and innovative management in other government and nonprofit organizations. The blend of current theory and applied knowledge is a strength of the UIC curriculum. The faculty are leaders in public administration research and engage students in thoughtful dialogue and challenging projects. The administrative staff is very encouraging and offers great support and service to students.
