Professional Projects on the Web: We are pleased to announce that we have begun to place professional projects (theses) on the MPA website. Currently we have fifteen alumni papers posted (13% of all alumni papers). While we have all of the papers on file, written consent to place the papers on the web must be obtained from each alumnus. All alumni have been contacted by letter and to date only 13% have responded. All current students will have their project posted, as the consent form is now part of the project process. You can access these projects by going to the MPA website, click “student resources,” and then click “archived professional papers;” or, you can click on the following shortcut: www.uncp.edu/mpa/papers/index.htm
MPA and Emergency Management: Congratulations to Drs. Schneider and Barbee for their success in the Emergency Management concentration. There is much interest expressed by new and prospective students in this new MPA direction. The Emergency Management concentration also received publicity on the University Newswire and in the Robesonian. For a copy of the article go to www.uncp.edu/news/2005/mpa.htm
MPA at Fort Bragg : The MPA program is part of an agreement reached by the University to present undergraduate and graduate programs at Fort Bragg. Programs are scheduled to begin Fall 2005.
