The Section on Public Administration Education (SPAE) contributes to the professional development of practitioners and academics by: increasing awareness of public administration educational issues; providing a forum for information exchange among members in regard to innovative curricula and pedagogical approaches across a wide range of topics; fostering a relationship between ASPA and the Journal of Public Affairs Education and the Journal of Teaching Public Administration; sponsoring the annual Teaching Public Administration Conference. Those interested in the professional development of public administrators and public administration scholars should consider joining this section.

We will be collaborating with the Midwest Public Affairs Conference (MPAC) for our annual Teaching Public Affairs Conference (TPAC). The annual conference will be held at the School of Public and Environmental Affairs, Indiana University Purdue University at Indianapolis, September 19-20, 2019. Refer to the TPAC 2019 link for conference details, the call for proposals and the links to register for the conference.
