December 1, 2015

Carl Van Horn, Distinguished Professor of Public Policy and Director of the John J. Heldrich Center for Workforce Development at the Bloustein School, has been elected as Fellow of the National Academy of Public Administration (NAPA).

NAPA is an independent, non-partisan organization, established in 1967 and chartered by Congress, that provides expert advice to government leaders in building more effective, efficient, accountable, and transparent institutions. It is one of two organizations (the other being the National Academy of Sciences) chartered by Congress in this manner. NAPA helps federal and state governments address critical management challenges through in-depth studies and analyses, advisory services, technical assistance, Congressional testimony, forums, and conferences.

NAPA’s fellows include former cabinet officers, members of Congress, governors, mayors, business executives, public administrators, and prominent scholars. The Academy’s fellows are responsible for establishing the organization’s policies and priorities and serving as advisers on panels studying government-wide management issues. Election to NAPA is one of the highest honors for those engaged in the study or practice of public administration and public policy.
