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.
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.
