We reflect the public service values that follow in our mission, and emphasize them in our academic program and practice. Our values are consistent with those of the University.
Public service: serving public interests by contributing to the field through public administration projects by providing business, management, and cross-discipline know-how to resolve public sector problems.
Accountability: determining and communicating optional and optimal courses of action by applying leading edge leadership, management, strategic, best practice, and analytical models and methods to public organizational issues.
Integrity and ethical decision making: applying the professional ethics code and additional relevant principles and frameworks to promote trust, fairness, and representativeness, and to help guide objective decision-making.
Diversity: applying diversity frameworks to organizational challenges to help utilize multiple perspectives, to promote opportunities for all, and to avoid discrimination. This allows us to work effectively in the public sector environment.
Engagement: relating effectively with participants to add value; e.g., faculty designing learning experiences to enhance student achievement of learning outcomes, the College of Business supporting faculty for professional development, and the PA Group supporting professional community activities.
Innovation: using teaching, research, scholarship and service creatively and effectively to benefit education and the academic, professional, and public sector community.
