abstract

  • This article examines the extent to which gender issues in public administration are covered in NASPAA-accredited and affiliated master's programs nationwide. In response to the NASPAA Diversity Report (2000), the authors surveyed all principal representatives in an effort to identify specific course coverage of gender issues within these programs. The study finds that courses on gender issues are being offered unevenly across NASPAA schools. The authors conclude that the study of gender issues in public affairs benefits—and remains essential for—female and male students and practitioners alike.
