Becoming a PPA Donor

Help us educate the next generation of California's leaders. Become a donor to Public Policy and Administration. Our students deserve the best professional and academic training we can give them and you can help us make that happen with a monetary gift.

Spring 2014 Happenings

The PPA Department at Sacramento State offers high quality, public sector master’s programs for working professionals. student studying under a ginko tree on campus

During the academic year 2012-2013 we completed the internal and external Program Review Process. Many in our PPA community gave of their time and energy in producing these useful evaluatory documents.

In cooperation with IHELP, we hired a new faculty member. Andrea Venezia is teaching PPA 205, Research in Public Policy and Administration, this fall. Dr. Venezia brings with her a strong and practical research background. We are happy to have her join us.

Peruse our PPA in the Community page for details about all the current amazing things our students, alumni, and faculty are up to. View our PPA Thesis Bank and our MSULD Thesis Bank to see the quality (and variety!) of work produced by our students. This is why your donations are so important and this is what your donations can help make happen.
