Make a world of difference

Created in 2001, the School of Public and International Affairs (SPIA) boasts award-winning faculty and students, and is ranked as the 4th best public affairs graduate school in the nation by U.S. News & World Report. We seek to recognize our past achievements, but we also look to the challenges of the future. If we are to provide this state, nation and world with the next generation of public service leaders and scholars, we must continue to build resources to provide only the best education to our students. We ask our alumni and friends to join us in this effort and make a gift to the School today.

Each year, the School hosts numerous special events featuring high profile speakers on topics of national and international importance. Past speakers include: Former U.S. Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, Nobel Laureate Elinor Ostrom, Co-Chair of the 9/11 Commission Lee Hamilton, Former U.S. Comptroller General David Walker, and Former Director of The White House Office of Management and Budget and the first Director of the Congressional Budget Office Alice Rivlin, among many others. Donors to the School at the $250 level and above receive invitations to these and other special events hosted by SPIA.
