MPA Professional Advisory Council (MPAPAC)

MPAPAC is composed of alumni and other public service professionals in the greater Spokane community. MPAPAC members are invited by the director to join the council. In addition to seeking public service professionals and alumni perspectives, the director selects members who will add diversity to the council. The council considers both internal activities and external impacts of the MPA program. MPAPAC members participate in assessing the curriculum and other activities of the program and make recommendations to help it better serve the profession, community, region, state and nation.
