Mohamad Alkadry, professor and department head of public policy at UConn, is among 39 leaders in the field of public administration selected to join the National Academy of Public Administration 2021 Class of Academy Fellows.
Selection of the Academy’s new Fellows follows a rigorous review of the individual’s contributions to the field of public administration and policy. The 2021 class joins more than 940 Academy Fellows – including former cabinet officers, members of Congress, governors, mayors and state legislators, as well as prominent scholars, business executives, nonprofit leaders, and public administrators.
Alkadry’s research on public administration theory, social equity, and gender and diversity have appeared in dozens of peer-reviewed articles, book chapters and journal symposia. He is also co-editor and co-author of three books: Women and Public Service: Barriers, Challenges and Opportunities (2013, 2014), These Things Happen: Stories from the Public Sector (2002), and Scaling Up Microenterprise Services (1998).
Alkadry and the new fellows will be inducted during the annual Academy Fall Meeting, which will take place virtually and in-person at five host sites across the country November 3-9.
