Additional Information

A group of students in the MPA program have organized a series of panel discussions on the public policy implications of hurricanes Katrina and Rita. The first panel will be on October 17th. Here's the announcement:

The social, financial and environmental devastation of Hurricane Katrina and now Hurricane Rita have impacted the lives of millions. PA students have organized a 3-part panel series to explore immediate lessons, response efforts and long-term rebuilding and each will host a number of professors from Maxwell's Public Administration Department, who will present their opinions while listening to ours.

Please join us October 17th from 6-7.30pm in Maxwell Auditorium for the first of a three-part panel series focusing on what went wrong. Professors Wilcoxen, Smeeding, VanSlyke, Levitsky and Roberts will lead the discussion. Future panels are planned for November and January.

This important event presents the opportunity for the entire campus community to come together to reflect over these tragic events. We will be collecting donations for the victims of both hurricanes and refreshments will be served at a reception immediately following the panel.

Stasha Fyfe, Meg Gray, Tara Holmes, Marcus Felder, Andrew Lattanner, Jaclyn Kupcha, Jennifer Handog, Annie Ju and Hua Liang .

The sessions will be co-sponsored by CEPA and the CPR.
