Faculty and Staff

BYU MPA faculty are passionate about the program. They represent a dynamic blend of experienced educators and internationally recognized practitioners. Our faculty are deeply committed to mentoring individual students in ways that are uncommon for graduate programs. Because the program size is small, MPA faculty develop close working relationships with students and often collaborate with them on research projects and field studies.

MPA faculty have expertise in areas such as city management, communications, international development, nonprofit management, career development, taxation and banking, community development, survey research, community health, legislative staff work, and management consulting.
