Actions and Detail Panel
2017 UNT MPA Alumni-Student Conference
Fri, April 7, 2017, 9:00 AM – 1:00 PM CDT
Join fellow alumni, faculty, and current students of the University of North Texas' Master of Public Administration program as we celebrate the power of the public service profession and focus on:
Smarter Decision Making With Data
Network with your peers while you learn about exciting, unique, and community-altering smart data initiatives around North Texas during the engaging morning panel session, then sit down to lunch with friends old and new to hear about how technology and informational tools are revolutionizing the field of public service and helping leaders make more accurate decisions. After the luncheon, be sure to bring your business cards for the Public Administration Student Association (PASA) social networking event. Meet and mentor current students looking for ways to engage and connect with professionals in the field. After the conference, come have a drink with alumni, faculty, and students in a relaxed environment just off the Denton Square and share your stories, enjoy the conversation, and reconnect with your Mean Green Family.
