Stephen Metraux, director of the Center for Community Research and Services, presents his research during the “Public Service Research and the Affordable Housing Predicament: Problems, Options, and Solutions.” Metraux is pictured here with panel moderator Billy Leung, senior vice president of business development, REMI; Vanessa Fry, director and associate research professor, Idaho Policy Institute at Boise State; and Rod Motamedi, assistant director, Economic and Public Policy Research, UMass Amherst Donahue Institute.

Three faculty and staff members represented the University of Delaware’s Joseph R. Biden, Jr. School of Public Policy and Administration at the Consortium of University Public Service Organizations (CUPSO) annual conference hosted from April 3–5, 2024, at the University of Massachusetts Amherst.

With a theme of "Preparing for the Future of Public Service," the CUPSO Conference brought together academic public service centers from across the nation to identify and address common challenges and share innovative approaches for improving policy making and public administration practices and developing government and nonprofit leaders.

Stephen Metraux, Biden School associate professor and director of the Center for Community Research and Service (CCRS), presented his work on homelessness and housing needs in Delaware as part of a panel titled “Public Service Research and the Affordable Housing Predicament: Problems, Options, and Solutions.” Panelists discussed methods to evaluate policy options at the federal, state, and local level to identify community-specific solutions. Metraux emphasized the challenges inherent to translating research into policy change, providing examples from his work in Delaware that could be applied more generally.

Portrait of Alaina Robinson presenting her poster during the 2024 CUPSO Conference

Alaina Robinson, policy specialist II at the Institute for Public Administration (IPA), presented a poster entitled “Improving Pre-K-12 Education in Delaware.” ​

Alaina Robinson, policy specialist II at the Institute for Public Administration (IPA), presented a poster titled “Improving Pre-K-12 Education in Delaware.” Robinson used her educational research and policy work with the Redding Consortium for Educational Equity as a case study for CUPSO attendees to learn more about improving policymaking through evidence-based research and evaluation.

Established in 2019, the Redding Consortium is a mandated state body that recommends policies and practices to the Governor and Delaware General Assembly that will improve educational outcomes for all Pre-K to grade twelve students in Wilmington and northern New Castle County, Delaware. Robinson’s poster highlighted the Redding Consortium's efforts to retain high-quality educators and other eligible school staff in public schools and charter schools across the city of Wilmington by establishing a state-funded scholarship program. Robinson described how IPA’s education services team supports the Redding Consortium by providing project management, administrative and staffing support, and policy research and analysis.
