A century ago in NYC, Luther Gulick, a founder of the field of public administration, helped launch and directed the Training School of Public Service within the Bureau of Municipal Research, which later evolved into the Institute of Public Administration (IPA). The first center of professional education for public service, the IPA pioneered a rigorous approach to the work of government. NYU Wagner is proud to award a Luther Gulick Fellowship, endowed by the Board of the Institute of Public Administration.

This symposium honors Luther Gulick and the IPA, as it examines the contemporary relevance of their contributions to the field. Please join us.

Breakfast at 8:30 AM/Program begins at 9:00 AM.
