Faculty

Our unique strengths allow the School of Public Policy to attract an unparalleled faculty of policy scholar-practitioners who share both the theory and practice of public policy and management, and play influential roles in the nation's policy-making process. Emeritus Distinguished University Professor Thomas Schelling won the 2005 Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences. We also have some of the nation's leading scholars on the federal budget process and U.S. trade policy and politics. Members of our faculty currently hold or have held posts as U.S. Trade Representative, Undersecretary of Defense, Commissioner of the Social Security Administration, Director of Foreign Policy Studies at the Brookings Institution, Director of the U.S. National Center on Child Abuse and Neglect, Assistant Director at-large in the Office of Science and Technology Policy, Assistant Secretary for Economic Policy at the Treasury Department, and economic advisor to the Prime Minister of Romania, as well as a number of key state and local positions.
