Rainey featured on C-SPAN
Dr. Hal Rainey, Alumni Foundation Distinguished Professor in SPIA’s Department of Public Administration and Policy, recently gave the Paine-Monroe Lecture at the University of Missouri’s Truman School of Public Affairs.
Featured on C-SPAN, Rainey addressed the challenges and opportunities confronting our federal government workforce, including the impending retirement of many baby-boomers. He discussed the issue of sustaining the attractiveness of government service in a climate in which government, its size, and those who serve in it, are routinely criticized in an effort to hold it accountable.
