Dr. Leslie A. Pal, Dean of the College of Public Policy (CPP), has been appointed to the new Presidential Committee on International Scholarly Engagement formed by the American Society for Public Administration (ASPA).
The committee will consider how the scientific community can think more deliberately about forms of scholarly engagement and their aims amid current global context. In this context, a shared commitment to democratic values, human rights, and academic freedom cannot be taken for granted. The committee’s work will include a series of conversations throughout 2022, aiming for the inclusion of scholars and institutions from all parts of the world. Dr. Pal is one of several distinguished members of the public administration field on the nine-member committee.
