Higher education will once again take center stage at the New York State Capitol this Tuesday as Excelsior College makes its case for the value of its new MPA program at Legislative Advocacy Day. Representatives from Excelsior’s School of Public Service will be on-hand to discuss how a Master of Public Administration degree can prepare current and aspiring public servants to make a difference in both their professional lives as well as within their communities.
Founded in 1971, Excelsior College is a private, nonprofit, distance learning institution. It currently serves over 38,000 adult learners across five schools and counts more than 156,000 graduates worldwide. In February, Excelsior’s School of Public Service, led by Dr. Robert Waters, launched an MPA degree focused on developing skilled, ethical leaders within the public and nonprofit sectors.
New York State Senator George Amedore and Assemblyman John T. McDonald will also be in attendance to discuss why they chose to heed the call to public service and what it takes to produce impactful change within their communities.
In addition, Excelsior College will offer lunch vouchers to public servants and government officials willing to offer a video testimonial on the value of public service.
