The Center for Public Administration and Policy's (CPAP's) distinguished place among programs in public administration and policy has been developed and nurtured by a remarkable faculty known across the profession and the globe for their commitment to making democracy work in a constitutional republic. Though retirements and new hires during the past four years have resulted in more than a fifty percent turnover in the CPAP faculty, our dedication to excellence, to our mission, and to our vision of the prominence and importance of CPAP in the world of scholarship and practice is stronger than ever before. We have been vigorously engaged in the strategic planning of our future, and conceptualizing the resources and faculty necessary to maintain our core commitments and achieve new ambitions across our Blacksburg, Alexandria, and Richmond programs.
