2016 Spring Conference

2016 APPAM Spring Conference

Promoting Justice Through Research and Practice

April 8 - 9, 2016
Grand Hyatt Washington | Washington, DC 

APPAM's new strategic plan seeks to advance the relevance of policy research while promoting and responding to diversity across the various activities of the association. This conference joined these strategic pillars by considering how attention to diversity and inequity could promote the policy relevance of APPAM scholarship. The conference also considered how to promote diversity and equity through the curricular practices of public affairs graduate programs, providing a venue for schools of public affairs to share effective practices for pedagogy of inclusion.
