I am pleased to share several open faculty positions at the School of Public Administration at the University of Central Florida (UCF).
UCF is a growing research university located in an evolving Orlando Metropolitan area. The university was recently highlighted in the Washington Post for its rapid growth and quality of its programs . UCF is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) to award degrees at the associate, baccalaureate, master’s, specialist, and doctoral levels.
The School of Public Administration is a member of the Networks of Schools of Public Policy, Affairs and Administration (NASPAA), which has accredited our Master of Public Administration program. Our Master of Nonprofit Management, and the school itself, have both been ranked by U.S. News and World Report. Our school offers graduate programs in five areas: public administration, nonprofit management, urban and regional planning, research administration, and emergency management and homeland security. We also offer undergraduate programs in all areas except for research administration. In addition, our school also houses the Center for Public and Nonprofit Management, which is the research arm of the school.
We encourage you to learn more about our academic programs, as well as the CPNM, by browsing through our website. Information on our academic programs, advisory boards, alumni, faculty, strategic plans, student organizations, projects and special events can be found under each programmatic area. Information on the CPNM can be found on its website, which shares the findings of research conducted by our faculty members and students on our four strategic areas – collaborative governance, democracy and citizen engagement, diversity and inclusiveness, and sustainability.
The “latest news” section of our webpage shares published articles that highlight the accomplishments of our alumni, our students and our faculty members. These articles are also shared in our newest publication, PA Access, a monthly newsletter distributed to faculty, students, alumni, advisory board members and other community leaders. Lastly, you will find the Public Administration Focus, our annual publication, which reports on the state of our school. Each of these sources of information can add to your understanding of the breadth of our school, the CPNM, and the impact that our programs have on our students and our community.
The summary job announcement with instructions for viewing the UCF job descriptions is attached.

Driving into work this morning and listening to NPR, I heard a report, read in calm and even tones, that ISIS is beheading,crucifying and burying alive CHILDREN. Yes, all caps and fairly frantic sounding. I felt nauseated and horrified and outraged. My outrage is directed towards the global civilized world that goes about it’s messy and distracting business rather than stopping everything in order to collectively stop this outrage against all of humanity. Perhaps these tales are exaggerated, but that is, of course, what good people said when they heard tales of the gas chambers during Hitler’s horror show. I wonder what it will take before there is a truly global effort to stop this nightmare?
Yesterday the Public Policy program co-sponsored a fascinating talk by Dr. Philip Schrodt who is a senior research scientist at the statistical consulting firm Parus Analytics and a pioneer in using event data to study political conflict. His discussion of the optimal strategies for analyzing rare events, and the challenge in posed to conventional analytic strategies was deeply stimulating. He also spoke of the vast amount of open source data and software to analyze that data. He talked also about crowd-sourced efforts to solve some of the problems of predicting, forecasting rare events. Is ISIS a rare event? Can “we” crowd source a coherent and effective global response?
Something must happen.
