SPEA’s Michael McGuire has earned a distinction that places him in the company of governors, college presidents and White House cabinet secretaries.
McGuire has been elected a Fellow of the National Academy of Public Administration (NAPA) and will be inducted at the group’s meeting in November.
In the letter to McGuire announcing his election, Fellow Chet Newland wrote, “You will be a great blessing to NAPA, enhancing its work and stature. Special thanks for your exemplary personal and professional qualities that resulted in your election.”
McGuire will join 680 Fellows that NAPA says “possess an unmatched wealth of expertise and serve as the cornerstone of the organization.” Among the Fellows are eight current or former governors, 18 current or former cabinet secretaries and 33 current or former university chancellors and presidents.
NAPA says of the Fellows: “They contribute valuable insight and experience to the oversight of National Academy projects and provide general guidance of the organization. Fellows are also the National Academy’s primary resource for addressing emerging issues and contributing to the intellectual and popular discourse on government through our standing panels.”
McGuire has been a member of SPEA’s faculty since 2005 and currently also serves as the managing editor of Public Administration Review.
