Key is proud to announce Dr. Ruth Zaplin as assistant director for the Key Executive Leadership Programs in the Department of Public Administration and Policy at the AU School of Public Affairs. Prior to becoming assistant director, Zaplan served as an executive coach and adjunct faculty member at Key.

Equally adept at bridging research, organizational theory, and practice, Zaplan's background includes executive leadership of a nationally known non-governmental organization and social science research in criminal justice. Zaplin has two nationally recognized textbooks in criminal justice and numerous book chapters related to leadership development.

She holds a DPA, MPA, MA, and BA. She received her Executive Coaching accreditation from Georgetown University and her Associate Certified Coach (ACC) designation from the International Coach Federation.
