The American Society for Public Administration and its Keystone State Chapter members look to public administration students to become the future generation leaders of government, nonprofit and academic organizations.
Students are invited to chapter events and are encouraged to network with chapter members who can provide advice and support for their academic and career pursuits. The Keystone State Chapter collaborates with university public administration programs on events that bring together practitioners, academics and students. At the annual Public Service Recognition Week event, our ASPA chapter is pleased to honor students who have earned Outstanding Student and Student Paper Awards. Also, chapter members participate in Pi Alpha Alpha Honor Society induction ceremonies that recognize the achievements of outstanding undergraduate and graduate students who are preparing for public service careers.
