IU Northwest School of Public and Environmental Affairs to host Meet and Greet Reception Dec. 5

Research projects, information about new MPA nonprofit management concentration to be highlighted

Tuesday Nov 20, 2012

Indiana University Northwest’s School of Public and Environmental Affairs (SPEA) will host a Meet and Greet Reception from 4 until 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 5.

The event, which will take place in the Savannah Center lobby, will allow undergraduate and graduate SPEA students the opportunity to showcase their recent research.

The reception will also provide attendees with information about the new Master of Public Affairs (MPA) nonprofit management curriculum that SPEA will begin offering during the Fall 2013 semester as well as all graduate certificate and concentration opportunities in the MPA. Attendees will also have a chance to learn about the MPA program, curriculum and application process and the structure of the cohort admission process commencing in Fall 2013.

The MPA degree program is an interdisciplinary, professional program that helps students succeed in various roles within the changing public and nonprofit sectors. There are four concentrations in the MPA program: criminal justice management/administration; health services administration; nonprofit management; and public management. Each concentration helps prepare students with the knowledge, skills, and values to assume managerial and leadership roles.

The Savannah Center is located at the southeast corner of the main campus parking lot at 33rd Avenue and Broadway in Gary, one half-mile south of I-80/94.

Parking fees will be suspended for the SPEA Meet and Greet Reception.

For questions regarding the reception, upcoming forums, or about the School of Public and Environmental Affairs, please contact Director and Associate Professor, Barbara Peat, Ph.D., at or (219) 981-5645.
