Master of Public Administration

MPA Graduate Student Association

Mission Statement

The MPA-GSA is an organization designed to support public administration graduate students by providing access to financial, social, and academic engagements, and professional advancement opportunities. Additionally, the MPA-GSA serves as a vessel by which direct feedback may be given to the Department of Public and International Affairs, which administers the Master of Public Administration degree program at UNCW.



Welcome to the MPA Graduate Student Association! Below you'll find the emails of each executive officer. Please reach out to us if you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions about MPA GSA. We're always excited to hear from our fellow students!

You can also peruse our event calendar below. We'll post information on social events, service events, and professional development opportunities.

We operate under the UNCW Graduate Student Association, our parent organization. You are also encouraged to attend their monthly meetings posted on the calendar. Attendance at these meetings may be required for graduate student travel funding from UNCW GSA. To learn more about professional and travel opportunities provided by UNCW GSA and our departmental MPA GSA, take a look at the resources in the sidebar.
