Law books. Three levels of advising are available to MPA students.

MPA Program Coordinator

The coordinator provides information and assistance with the MPA program's administrative requirements. The coordinator:
  • helps you understand degree requirements, course selection, and schedule planning;
  • refers you to resources across campus that can boost academic performance;
  • helps you understand academic policies and procedures; and
  • provides information about potential areas of study.
For more information, contact the department at

Faculty Advisor

Once admitted to the MPA program, each student is paired with a member of the faculty. This faculty advisor will give you academic and career advice.

Students should meet regularly with their faculty advisor to explore their academic options and career goals.

Program Director

The MPA program director welcomes feedback from students and alumni. Contact the director if you have a question or concern that cannot be addressed by the program coordinator or a faculty advisor.
