Becoming networked with your colleagues and other practitioners is an important part of the graduate education experience. The PA department encourages you to network by making available networking possibilities.
Facebook – Our department has a Facebook page. We post departmental news, job information and other items of interest.
Linkedin – A professional networking site that connects people with career, education and traning information.
Organizations – You might also consider membership in:
The Public Administration Honor Society when you are far enough along in the program.
The student PA organization. See their PASA Facebook.
And don’t forget the American Society for Public Administration (and the local Springfield Chapter).
