Wagner's Diana Beck Wins State Academy's Teaching Award
The State Academy for Public Administration has chosen NYU Wagner’s Diana Beck as the recipient of its 2007 Arnold L. Steigman Excellence in Teach Public Administration Award.
Nominated by Wagner for the honor, Professor Beck is a Lecturer on Public Administration. She also works on several projects analyzing data relating to performance of the health care system as Associate Research Scientist with the Center for Health and Public Service Research (CHPSR) at the Wagner School.
This is the third time in three years that the award has been given by the State Academy. Based in Albany, the academy exists to provide a forum for dialogue on critical public administration issues in New York State, to sponsor and stimulate research on public policy issues, to sponsor professional conferences and in-service education, and to provide advice and guidance on management to not for profit and governmental organizations. Arnold Steigman, Ph.D., dedicated his life to the practice of, and education in, public administration. He retired in 1995 after a 40-year career devoted to the practice of public administration in the state.
The selection of Professor Beck was announced by Leo A. Kellogg, co-chair of the Steigman Award Committee. She received the award on June 13, 2007.
