7 Dean s Message Local government, governmental agencies, and Non-governmental Organizations (NGOs) are looking for Public Administration graduates who have an understanding of not only the role of the individual, of businesses, of local, state, and federal government, but also how they fit together to lead and institute change, and utilize technology to promote organizational objectives. In my role as Dean of the College of Business & Public Management, I am extremely proud of the academic quality of the University of La Verne Master of Public Administration Program and its ability to address the needs of local governments, preparing students for positions in local government and public service. Public service agencies seek individuals who have the ability to effectively solve problems and be innovative, possess good communication skills, demonstrate ethics, and embrace diversity. That is what our program addresses. The MPA offered by the University is designed to provide our students with a broad-based management education that emphasizes the application of theory to management practice, building the conceptual skills and core values needed to become effective leaders and managers in today s rapidly changing environment. Our program consists of nationally recruited faculty and, since 2000, our program has maintained national accreditation by the Network of Schools of Public Policy, Affairs, and Administration (NASPAA). The MPA Program is designed to meet the needs of the working professional as well as those who have limited work experience. Our evening class schedule is flexible enough to accommodate students with different needs and responsibilities. La Verne s legacy of close relationships and personalized education is a foundation on which we continue to build. Such personalization between faculty and students, and among the students themselves encapsulates the difference between us and other learning institutions. When you enroll in the MPA, you are embraced by an academic environment made up of committed and well-trained faculty, a diverse community of scholars and learners, and access to a network of students and practitioners who hold public service positions throughout our communities. The academic quality of our programs, the convenience of our schedules, and most importantly, the commitment of our faculty and staff, make our program one of the most sought after in Southern California. I hope you seriously consider the opportunity to earn your Master of Public Administration from the University of La Verne. It is an investment that will reward you for a lifetime.
