The Green School’s Department of Public Policy and Administration was actively represented at least week’s annual conference of NASPAA (Network of Schools of Public Policy, Affairs, and Administration), with Dean Shlomi Dinar and six faculty members participating on five different panels. Topics ranged from leveraging international perspectives in public administration education and teaching cybersecurity to navigating new laws around diversity, equity and inclusion.
