Professor elected as NAPA fellow

H. Brinton Milward, McClelland professor of public management and associate dean and director of the School of Public Administration and Policy at the Eller College of Management, has been elected a fellow of the National Academy of Public Administration.

NAPA is an independent, nonprofit and nonpartisan corporation led by Congress to provide advice to officials about governance and public management issues like dealing with HIV/AIDS in Africa, homeland security and containing wildfire costs. As a NAPA fellow, Milward joins 550 scholars, officials and leaders.

Paul Portney, dean of the Eller College, said the college is honored for Milward to have received the fellowship.

"The worlds of the public sector, nonprofits and commercial enterprise are converging at an amazing rate - as a college combining leadership education in all of those areas, he will bring a distinct and relevant voice to the academy's work," Portney said in a press release.
