There are 270 schools+ that have
program graduate programs and public affairs in the country. Actually, this is
the fourth time in a row that we have moved up in the rankings, and it’s a
recognition about how excellent our faculty are, how excellent our programs
are, our curriculum here. So it’s really an honor and recognition from our peers
for the excellence here in the school. We have actually work on information
technology that’s embedded in research across all of our different centers here.
Technology is really an integral part of the future of public administration and
public policy. We can’t talk about what government does without talking about
the role that technology plays. It’s not about being an engineer, it’s about
understanding the potential of technology to shape organizations, to
shape the way that we relate to people. We need to think about how can we use
that to improve the way that we govern. How can we innovate using those
technologies. It’s important to me that my research is meaningful for practice,
and this is an area where I’ve been excited to make contributions to work
with policymakers and practitioners with community organizations. So I look
forward to doing more of that.
