2016 Admissions Directors Meeting Recap

On July 14, 2016 NASPAA sponsored its annual Admission Directors Meeting. Sponsored by the University of Minnesota's Humphrey School of Public Affairs, the meeting was attended by close to 60 admission representatives from NASPAA member schools.

The attendees heard from Bob Augustine from the Council of Graduate Schools who presented on the current state of graduate schools in the United States. As well as participated in a very lively discussion on social media tools used in recruitment led by Alex Thomas, University of Arkansas Clinton School of Public Service; Barry Wall, University of Washington Evans School of Policy and Governance; and Donald Tighe, American University School of Communication.
