PA Alumni Association


Division of Public Administration Alumni Association

We are a group comprised of MPA, MPA:HA, MPH:HMP, and EMPA alumni of the Portland State University Division of Public Administration. The goal of the Alumni Association is to bring alumni together for networking, knowledge sharing, and professional development opportunities. 

Alumni Association Newsletter

To maintain connections among alumni, spur discussion about relevant public administration-related issues, and highlight alumni accomplishments, the Alumni Association produces a twice-yearly newsletter. See the most recent issue here (this link will take you to another site).
