About PARC

The UCF Public Administration Research Conference has been hosted annually by the School of Public Administration and the Center for Public and Nonprofit Management for the past 13 years. The goal is to bring together both academics and practitioners who can share innovative ideas and spark an engaging discussion pertaining to the field of public administration.

Over the past decade, the conference has featured a variety of presentations from city managers, nonprofit administrators, government practitioners, urban planners, scholars and graduate students. Previous keynote speakers include Peter Warren Singer of the Brookings Institute, Daniel Clark of AmericaSpeaks and Stephen Goldsmith of Harvard’s John F. Kennedy School of Government.

The conference typically attracts more than 100 attendees each year, allowing for more intimate discussions and for closer connections to be made. It is always held at the University of Central Florida in beautiful, sunny Orlando.
