About Public Policy and Administration Department
Welcome to the Public Policy and Administration Department (PPAD). As the University’s hub for the study of global and public affairs, we are dedicated to training our world’s future leaders to support evidence-based policymaking, shape the effective and efficient administration of government and nonprofit organizations, and better public governance domestically and internationally. We are the first department in Africa and the Middle East to be accredited by the Network of Schools of Public Policy Affairs, and Administration (NASPAA).
Our mission is to support evidence-based policymaking, effective and efficient administration of government and nonprofit organizations, and better public governance domestically and internationally by preparing professionals for careers in public service, conducting policy-relevant research and promoting dialogue on issues of public importance.
Our Vision is the creation of a cadre of highly skilled professionals committed to public service careers in government, nonprofits, international organizations or the private sector, supported by high-quality, evidence-based research that is carried out by organizations in their own countries and contributes to an open debate on policy options, programs, and the ways that both policies and programs affect society.
