About IPA

A Message from the Director

photo of IPA director Jerome LewisI am pleased to welcome you to the website of the Institute for Public Administration (IPA). This site provides important information about our many programs and projects, our staff and students, as well as access to recent publications. Our site also links you to related units at the University of Delaware and partner organizations with which IPA collaborates at state and national levels. In 2011, IPA joined the College of Arts & Sciences at the University of Delaware and officially became part of the college's School of Public Policy & Administration.

Established in 1973, IPA addresses the policy, planning, and management needs of its partners through the integration of applied research, professional development, and the education of tomorrow’s leaders.

We provide direct staff assistance, research, policy analysis, training, and forums while contributing to the scholarly body of knowledge in public administration.

If you’re a prospective student, take a look at what our students say about the Institute for Public Administration. If you’re a Delaware citizen, we urge you to browse our site to get a glimpse of the broad range of services IPA provides within Delaware and beyond. I hope you’ll look to www.ipa.udel.edu as your primary online public administration resource. Using social media is an additional way we're getting our word out to the world. Friend us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.

Your comments are appreciated. I will be happy to answer any questions you may have about IPA. I can be reached at 302-831-8971 or by e-mail. Thanks for visiting. I hope you’ll return often.

Jerome R. Lewis
