PMF Class of 2013 Finalists AnnouncedApril 9, 2013
Congratulations to Kristin Scally and Daniel Crespo on being selected as 2013 Presidential Management Fellows.
Bearing the Presidential moniker, the PMF Program is a flagship leadership development program at the entry level for advanced degree candidates. It was created more than three decades ago by Executive Order and has gone through many changes over the years. The Program attracts and selects the best candidates possible, but is really designed with a more narrow focus – developing a cadre of potential government leaders. It provides some sustenance during the first years of employment and encourages development of leadership capabilities. The PMF Program inculcates a lasting bond as well as a spirit of public service, ultimately encouraging and leading to a career in the government.
The MPA program at UIC blended policy-based classes taught by knowledgeable professors with practical experience working with government agencies. I left the program immediately prepared for a career in the public sector.
