Dr. William Dunn has been named an Honorary Member of the Network of Schools and Institutes and Schools of Public Administration in Central and Eastern Europe. The award is given to recipients of the Alisa Brunovska Award for Teaching Excellence in Public Administration, and to former NISPAcee Presidents and Executive Directors. Dr. Dunn also recently received the University of Pittsburgh Provost's Award for Excellence in Mentoring.
The Provost’s Award recognizes faculty for their outstanding mentoring of graduate students. Faculty mentors provide intellectual and personal leadership that helps to support, encourage, and promote the personal and professional development of his or her students. This relationship is expected to provide a foundation for a student’s career long after the degree has been granted.
Dr. Dunn is the former associate dean of GSPIA and the author of the 5th edition of Public Policy Analysis (2012), which is the most widely cited book on the subject.
The Network of Institutes and Schools of Public Administration in Central and Eastern Europe originated from the genuine effort of people and institutions from the region to share the knowledge and skills and unite the effort to cope with present and future challenges in the field. We believe that thorough and appropriate identification of the present and prospective needs of member institutions along with the effective means of their satisfaction is the most crucial element of the success of our organisation. That is why we accept this mission statement in order to identify, steer and orientate our future activities within the next three to five years. To learn more about NISPAcee, click here.
