Dr. Mastracci Wins Book AwardApril 29, 2013
Congrats to Professor Sharon Mastracci, whose book, “Emotional Labor and Crisis Response: Working on the Razor’s Edge”, has been selected for the 2013 Academy of Management Public-Nonprofit (PNP) Division Best Book Award. The book competed with some very fine scholarship and won based on its solid empirical foundation and theoretical contribution to public-nonprofit management theory.
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.
