Giving to Our School
"KU's public administration programs are critical to the advancement of strategic thinkers and collaborative opportunities. Your support is an investment in the future of our profession and society. Every dollar assists in the development of our future." - Raymond Lee, 2009-2011 City & County Leadership Program Intern-Option Class President
Especially now. We see these words more and more often as we all seek to cope with the current environment. For those of us in the public sector these are indeed difficult times with unprecedented challenges. It is now we need leaders who are risk takers and innovators who will help address our economic and social problems.
Especially now. Our academic programs at the University of Kansas are in a unique position to fulfill this promise. We continue to be the #1 ranked program according to U. S. News and World Report in city management and urban policy. We are in a position to recruit the very best students to our program.
Especially now. We need talented and educated public servants dedicated to building communities, solving problems, and contributing to their profession. This environment gives us an historic opportunity to recruit talented individuals to build the next generation of community leaders. It is now we should redouble our efforts to attract a diversity of students to KU.
Especially now. We need your continued support of the KU Public Administration program. We hope you will consider giving a gift and making a pledge to the School of Public Affairs and Administration.

A New Opportunity to Give: The John and Carol Nalbandian Scholarship Fund
The John and Carol Nalbandian Scholarship will support MPA students preparing for careers in local government. The scholarship recognizes the myriad contributions the Nalbandians have made to students, local government professionals, and elected officials over the past five decades. Through their teaching and consulting as well as their work as citizen volunteers, they have exemplified the spirit of public service bringing credit to themselves and the University of Kansas.
