Public Administration Student Organizations
The Department of Public Administration offers two program-specific student organizations to graduate students. In addition, it also encourages students to get involved with organizations associated with different majors and the college as a whole.
The Public Administration Student Association (PASA) is a professional student organization for students in the public administration program. PASA provides professional and social activities for students to meet with professional public administrators and political leaders as well as enhances student-faculty relations. PASA also provides information regarding career opportunities in the field of public administration.
