Welcome to the School of Public Affairs at St. Cloud State University. While you are exploring our website I hope you will see the exciting things the school has to offer and choose to join us. We are training students to become contributing members of their local, regional, national, and global communities. While the school is brand new, its departments and programs are very well established and have distinguished track records in teaching, research, and community outreach. As part of the university‚Äôs reorganization, the school brings together four departments from the former College of Social Sciences, that share the common goal of producing graduates that go on to highly successful careers in the private, public, and non-profit sectors.
I encourage you to learn more about our degree-based education programs in traditional areas, as well as our more specialized programs. You will see that we approach public policy from a wider lens compared to other universities because, in addition to the political science- based interpretation of public policy, we integrate other disciplines and fields that directly contribute to the management of the public interest.
Thanks for visiting our webpage. I hope you will consider an exciting future for yourself that begins here.
Professor of Economics
