The U.S. News & World Report’s 2017 edition of “Best Graduate Schools” has recognized our public administration programs as among the nation’s best.

The college’s Askew School of Public Administration and Public Policy placed No. 19 in public affairs, with its public management administration program ranked No. 17, its public policy analysis program ranked No. 21 and its public finance and budget program ranked No. 23. And the Askew School’s city management and urban policy program broke into the top 10 at No. 8 in the first U.S. News rankings of the discipline since 2012.

“The Askew School of Public Administration and Policy has a tremendous record of training effective, dynamic leaders in public affairs, and these rankings reflect the program’s long-standing tradition of excellence,” said Tim Chapin, associate dean of the College of Social Sciences and Public Policy.
