Spring New Student OrientationDecember 17, 2012
The MPA New Student Orientation is scheduled for the
evening of Tues, January 8th at 5pm. The location is room 110, CUPPA
Hall, 412 S. Peoria St. Chicago, 60607. Please mark you calendars!
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.
"Because of my interest in improving the human condition through public service, I chose to enter the MPA program at UIC. Chicago, rich in history, diversity, and politics, is the perfect place to learn about all aspects of public administration. For my Capstone team project, I was provided the opportunity to collaborate with a nonprofit organization on the West Side of Chicago to develop a training and professional development curriculum. As Public Service Chair of PASA, I have volunteered alongside many of my colleagues in different service projects in the Chicagoland area. I like how this MPA program provides opportunities for students to interact with each other in the classroom and outside the classroom environment. It is a flexible program that enables students working full-time the ability to take classes at night. I would highly recommend the MPA program at UIC to prospective students."
