Jeremy Hall, professor and academic program coordinator for the doctoral program in public affairs, has been invited to join the 2020 Class of Academy Fellows for the National Academy of Public Administration (NAPA). Since 1967, the academy has helped government leaders address critical management challenges to build organizations that are effective, equitable and transparent. Through the support of fellows, NAPA provides non-partisan support to government leaders through in-depth studies and analyses, technical assistance, forums and conferences. “Our distinguished fellows are nationally recognized for their expertise and contributions to the field of public administration, and Hall is no exception. During this especially turbulent time for government, we welcome his experience and perspective as we work collaboratively to find solutions to the grand challenges in public administration, advance social equity and build resilient communities,” says Terry Gerton, president and CEO of the National Academy of Public Administration.
Hall joined UCF in 2016 as professor and academic program coordinator for the School of Public Administration’s Master of Public Administration. In 2018, he was selected to serve as co-editor-in-chief for Public Administration Review, one of the most widely cited journals in the discipline. In addition, he serves or has served on the editorial boards of the Journal of Public Administration Research and Theory, Public Performance and Management Review, State and Local Government Review, the Commonwealth Review of Political Science and the Journal of Public Administration Education.
“The National Academy of Public Administration is an organization that clearly manifests the important relationship between scholarship and practice in its work. Among the honors one could hope to achieve as a scholar in the field of public administration, being named a NAPA Fellow is at the very top,” says Hall.
Hall joins more than 900 Academy fellows, including distinguished scholars, legislators, members of Congress, governors, diplomats and business executives. Fellows will be formally inducted during the organization’s fall meeting in November.
