Welcome to the Student Division!

We are so excited that you are here and hope that the following information is helpful to you during your studies. We offer a variety of information in relation to practicum sites, internships, mentorships, and helpful links when you are burning fuel in the early hours of the morning to finish that paper!

We would encourage you to check us out on Facebook where you can find all the latest information happening within the Student Division of MPA! When you like us on Facebook not only do you get to hear the latest happenings at MPA but we also include weekly posts to help you through those difficult times as students, as well as connection to others who are doing the same work!

If there is anything that we can do as Co-Chairs we would love to hear from you! The best way to contact us is at [email protected] or through a personal message on facebook. We look forward to hearing from you, meeting you, and supporting you through grad school!

Sincerely,

MPA Student Division

Within this context of unity and self-exploration, we are committed to increasing our sensitivity to all aspects of diversity as well as our knowledge and appreciation of the unique qualities of different cultures and backgrounds.We aspire to becoming alert to aspects of diversity, previously unseen or unacknowledged in our culture. In this spirit, we are committed to collaborating with multicultural groups to combat racism and other forms of prejudice as we seek to promote diversity in our society. To this end, we are dedicated to increasing our multicultural competencies and effectiveness as educators, researchers, administrators, policy makers, and practitioners.
