A Message From the Director
I am pleased to welcome you to the website of the Institute for Public Administration (IPA). This site provides important information about our many programs and projects, our staff and students, as well as access to recent publications.
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. IPA is a research and public service center in the Joseph R. Biden, Jr. School of Public Policy & Administration within the College of Arts & Sciences at the University of Delaware.
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, learn more about our internship opportunities both on and off campus.
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. You may also view our IPA brochure and menu of services to learn more about our work.
I hope you’ll look to IPA as your primary online public administration resource. Using social media is an additional way we're getting our word out to the world. Like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.
Your comments are appreciated. I will be happy to answer any questions you may have about IPA. I can be reached by phone at 302-831-8971 or by email at email@example.com. Thanks for visiting. I hope you’ll return often.
