Abraham Benavides, chair of the Department of Public Administration, which houses the master of public administration program, said the ranking of the city management and urban policy specialization “is a testament to the dedicated faculty, staff, students, and alumni of our program.”
Linda Holloway, chair of the Department of Disability and Addiction Rehabilitation, said the ranking of the rehabilitation counseling program “reflects the incredible passion and talent of our faculty, staff and students.”
“Students often remark about how accessible the faculty are to them and how much support they receive. The faculty are nationally recognized for their research and contributions to the field but they have not lost sight of their true purpose for being in higher education—- which is to prepare our students to be highly qualified and competent professionals,” Holloway said.
She added that students graduate from the rehabilitation counseling program with a 98 percent employment rate.
“It is evident that employers value the contributions that our graduates make to their organizations,” Holloway said.
