University of Delaware School of Urban Affairs and Public Policy
graduate students Robert Coons and Sarah Logrieco were invited to
participate in a session entitled Study Abroad for Graduate Students:
Combining Teaching and Research in a Cross Cultural Course in Public
Administration and Public Policy at the 18th NISPAcee
(Network of Institutes and Schools of Public Administration in Central
and Eastern Europe) Annual Conference held in Warsaw in mid-May.
They never expected their January 2010 trip to Romania as part of the
SUAPP cross cultural course in public administration and public policy
would turn into a May trip to Warsaw -- but it did.
The research was conducted with public administration graduate students studying at Babes-Bolyai University
in Cluj-Napoca, Romania. Coons, accompanied by Romanian student Andreaa
Andries, presented research on Emergency Management in Romania and
Logrieco, accompanied by Diana Pop, presented a paper on Prevalent
Issues in Romania: Public School Management and the Progress of Regional
During their January stay in Cluj-Napoca, Coons, Logrieco and five
other SUAPP students worked in teams with Romanian graduate students,
conducting interviews, collecting data and meeting with local and
national government leaders as well as nonprofit, education and media
Research topics included public education, public health,
opportunities for economic and social development of minorities
(especially the Roma population), disaster response, freedom of
information, anticorruption measures, and the interrelationship of
public transportation and air quality.
The resulting research papers were initially presented at a forum on
Jan. 21 in Romania that was preceded by a press conference at which
student participants were interviewed by Romanian print and broadcast
Logrieco received her master's degree in public administration (MPA) on May 29 and will begin work with Uncommon Schools in Newark, N.J. Coons, who has been working in the University's Disaster Research Center, expects to receive the MPA degree in 2011.

The study abroad program was developed by Arno Loessner, University
of Delaware associate professor emeritus (SUAPP) and supported by Calin
Hintea, chair of the Public Administration Department at Babes-Bolyai
University as part of the active cooperation between the two programs
UD and Babes-Bolyai University in Romania have cooperated for several
years. The cooperation has resulted in Fulbright exchanges of faculty,
student exchanges and courses conducted by Loessner, who holds
appointments at both institutions.
A recent meeting of UD's Loessner, Dan Rich, University Professor of
Public Policy, Maria Aristigueta, director of SUAPP, and Jerome Lewis,
director of the Institute for Public Administration,
with Hintea and Catalin Baba, dean of social science at Babes-Bolyai,
developed a proposed project to adapt successful programs from UD's
School of Urban Affairs and Public Policy to higher education
institutions in Romania.
The project, designed to promote social and economic development in
Romania by involving universities in applied research and public
service, has been mentioned by Romanian Prime Minister Emil Boc in
communications with Vice President Joe Biden, a UD alumnus.
