Cornell University Cornell Brooks Public Policy

People

Because the MPA Program is an interdisciplinary program, our Brooks MPA Students take courses from a wide variety of faculty members across the university.  The MPA Program Faculty Advisory Board members provide cohesion to the program and coherence in academic advising. They also teach core courses, which serve as the academic foundation of the program. Teaching faculty provide supplemental coursework, enhancing the program offerings available to Brooks MPA Students.
