Mission & Vision
The Department of Public Administration provides graduate and undergraduate students with an understanding of the field of the public administration and the leadership skills required for public service.
Graduate students are taught through small, interactive weekend and hybrid classes that draw on their life experiences and their ability to direct their own learning and to strengthen their analytical skills, ethics, accountability, responsiveness, and public service leadership capacity.
Undergraduate students are taught face-to-face and online by experienced public administration faculty about the field of public administration and potential public service career tracks through information in the areas of human resources, economic development, leadership, bureaucracy, and political process.
Our vision is that University of Wisconsin Oshkosh Public Administration graduates are exceptional leaders in their public service organizations and communities.
