About Professor Sheldon Gen Ph.D.:

Dr. Gen is an associate professor in the School of Public Affairs and Civic Engagement, and a Senior Researcher with the Cesar Chavez Institute. In the MPA program, he advises students in the public policy and environmental administration emphases. He studies public engagement in policy making processes, and focuses on environmental and education policy issues. These interests stem from his prior employment and consultancies with many public and nonprofit organizations in the areas of environment, education, transportation, and development. He holds a B.S. and license in civil engineering, a M.P.A., and a Ph.D. in public policy. He is also an alumnus of the Presidential Management Fellowship and the Peace Corps.

Through this kind of arrangement, he has delivered over 20 agency reports with over 30 student co-authors. A few of these engagements have also led to conference presentations and journal publications.
