In Rutgers University–Camden’s interdisciplinary Ph.D. program in public affairs, students learn that community development takes place at the intersections of increasingly complex and globalized economic, political, legal, and social systems.
A testament to this comprehensive approach, 10 Ph.D. students in public affairs are making research presentations – each unique in its focus on policies and practices – at the 44th annual conference of the Urban Affairs Association, held from March 19 to 22 in San Antonio.
“I am very proud of the accomplishments of the Ph.D. students and their contributions to urban-affairs research,” says Marie Chevrier, chair of the Department of Public Policy and Administration at Rutgers–Camden and head of the Ph.D. program.
It is a remarkable achievement for a relatively new program, and an impressive accomplishment for the university, adds Paul Jargowsky, director of the Center for Urban Research and Education at Rutgers–Camden.
