MPA-PAA CA Symposium Featuring Professor Hassan Abdulhaqq’s Students

Saturday, March 30th 1:00-2:30 PM

In the Learning Commons

Reception to follow!

Dean Humphrey Crookendale, School for Public Affairs and Administration, Dr. Hassan Abdulhaqq, Professor and Kate Adler, Director of Library Services invite students, alumni, and friends to join them in celebrating the scholarship of eight Purpose 3 MPA students.

These students have spent a full year in difficult engaged research, involving intense writing, data crunching, and many late nights. In collaboration with professors, librarians, writing and math specialists, and with one another, they have put together rigorous and interesting Constructive Actions. These projects embody Purpose-Centered Education’s mission to marry theory and practice in order to change lives and communities.

This panel discussion will be followed by a question and answer session, a reception, and informal conversation.

In particular, Dean Crookendale, Professor Abdulhaqq, and Kate Adler invite MPA – PAA students in Purposes 1 and 2 to come and ask questions, learn tools for a successful Constructive Action project, and engage in dialogue with those that have gone before.

The panelists will include:

  • Debra Mack-Glasgow – “The Paradox of Afterschool Academic Initiatives and Funding Mandates”
  • Anna Quinones-Brown – “Improving Person-Centered Services”
  • Malissa Ifill – “Lack of Diversity in Senior Roles in the Public Sector”
  • Annastesia Harris – “Black Male Undergraduate Degree Completion at Medgar Evers College”
  • Donovan Leigh – “Reducing Recidivism of Families Returning to Shelter”
  • Wayne Burrowes – “Twenty-One and Beyond: A Continuum-of-Care Model for Adolescents”

A light lunch will be served!
