PPIA’s mission and overall focus are to increase the participation and inclusion of traditionally underrepresented groups at the highest level of public sector leadership. NASPAA, the membership association of graduate programs in public administration, public policy, and public affairs, supports these goals and shares PPIA’s vision in creating a new generation of diverse students to enter graduate programs and pursue careers in public service. PPIA is thrilled to continue hosting Public Service Weekends to introduce more students to the broad range of opportunities available in the field of public service.
