School of Public Policy and Leadership

The School of Public Policy and Leadership was created to assist the College of Urban Affairs in its mission to prepare community leaders and address pressing societal issues. The school provides an umbrella for exciting, interdisciplinary research and teaching in public administration and governance, environmental science and studies, non-profit management, urban studies, and natural resources management. Our faculty’s strong record and interest in these areas offer students and practitioners a variety of possibilities in cutting-edge and relevant knowledge, research, and projects. The school does this primarily through interdisciplinary activities including policy forums and the offering of doctoral degrees in environmental science and public affairs.
