On March 25th, 2019 the Comptroller General of the United States, Gene Dodaro, gave a lecture on government Accountability titled:
The Many Dimensions of Accountability: GAO’s Mission for Congress and the Nation.
Before the lecture, the Comptroller General sat down with some of the PADP students for coffee and conversation. Students had an opportunity to discuss with Mr. Dodaro some of the questions and topics they had on their mind about government accountability.
After the lecture, everyone was welcomed to a reception in Candler Hall, where there was much discussion and networking.
The Getzen Lecture on Government Accountability is made possible by UGA alumni Katherine Getzen Willoughby (PhD ‘91) and Dan Hall Willoughby Jr. (JD ‘86) in honor of her parents, Evangeline Sferes Getzen and Forrest William Getzen, lifelong advocates for public service and education.
