The Public Affairs Faculty Manual: A Guide to the Effective Management of Public Affairs Programs Edited by Bruce McDonald III and William Hatcher
Keywords:NASPAA Accreditation, Program Development, Curriculum Planning
In The Public Affairs Faculty Manual: A Guide to the Effective Management of Public Affairs Programs, editors Bruce McDonald III and William Hatcher, provide a broad overview on designing, leading, and managing a public affairs (PA) program. The edited volume is explicitly written for PA faculty in new leadership roles in higher education, though it is a useful reference for administrators of all levels and even useful for regular faculty. Despite excellent journals focused on PA education, such as Journal of Public Affairs Education, and Teaching Public Administration, there is a clear need for a focused cultivation of fundamental knowledge, research, and experience-informed advice for academic administrators in PA programs.
