A Message from the Director
I am pleased to welcome you to the Institute for Public
This site provides important information about our
many programs and projects, our staff and students, as well as access to recent publications.
Our site also links you to related units at the University of Delaware
and partner organizations with which IPA collaborates at state and
national levels. In 2011, IPA joined the College of Arts & Sciences at the University of Delaware and officially became part of the college's School of Public Policy & Administration.
Established in 1973, IPA addresses the policy, planning, and
management needs of its partners through the integration of applied
research, professional development, and the education of tomorrow’s
leaders. We provide direct staff assistance, research, policy analysis, training, and forums while contributing to the scholarly body of knowledge in public administration.
If you’re a prospective student, take a look at the internship opportunities we provide for both graduate and undergraduate students.
If you’re a Delaware citizen, we urge you to browse our site to get a glimpse of the broad range of services IPA provides within Delaware and beyond.
Your comments are appreciated. I'm happy to answer any
questions you may have about IPA. I can be reached at (302)-831-8971 or by
e-mail. Thanks for visiting. I hope you’ll return often.
