 Global Outreach

NASPAA's international projects focus on activities that help strengthen networks and associations of public administration schools internationally. These projects involve partnerships with:
  • EAPAA: In November 2011, NASPAA signed a Memorandum of Understanding for Coordinated Accreditation with EAPAA. Programs interested in applying for both accreditations may now do so under a coordinated process, including a single site visit. The European Association for Public Administration Accreditation (EAPAA) is an accreditation and quality-assurance association that develops and maintains high-quality public affairs' programs in Europe.

  • NISPAcee: NASPAA's Memorandum of Understanding with NISPAcee is an agreement to encourage greater levels of working together and communication regarding the promotion of quality public service education, such as by supporting international exchanges and conference attendance. The Network of Institutes and Schools of Public Administration in Central and Eastern Europe (NISPAcee) is a networking association created to spread knowledge, skills, and experience in the field of public affairs education.

  • INPAE: NASPAA has a longstanding relationship with INPAE; at least 10 schools are members of both. The agreement focuses on close cooperation and collaboration, as well as offering support to INPAE member school interested in pursuing NASPAA accreditation. The Inter-American Network of Public Administration Education (INPAE), created with the support of NASPAA, is an institution of higher education schools committed to developing public affairs' programs in South America.

  • CHINESE MOU: NASPAA and Chinese MPA Committee agreed on the importance of ensuring quality of public service education globally, and agreed to develop an MOU for further cooperation.
