We bring the world to SPA, and SPA to the world. Our location in Washington, DC, makes us a hub for leaders in public administration and policy, government, justice, law, and criminology. There is no better place for engaging scholars and policymakers in dialogue and educating the leaders in public affairs who will succeed them. But we are not confined to our campus or our hometown. Our faculty disseminate ideas and research at events worldwide, launching conversations that contribute to critical public discourse.
