MPA Professional Advisory Council (MPAPAC)


MPAPAC is composed of alumni and other public service professionals in the greater Spokane community. In addition to seeking public service professionals and alumni perspectives, members are selected 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 the program so it will better serve the profession, community, region, state and nation.

If you are interested in joining the MPAPAC, please contact Dr. Courtney Jensen at .
