Fountain Elected to National Academy of Public Administration
Jane Fountain, Professor of Political Science and Public Policy, has been elected a Fellow of the National Academy of Public Administration. The National Academy was chartered by Congress to provide non-partisan expert advice and serves as an independent, non-profit, and non-partisan organization to assist government leaders in building more effective, efficient, accountable, and transparent organizations.
As a fellow, Professor Fountain joins nearly 700 members representing members of US Congress; presidential cabinet members; federal department deputy and undersecretaries; governors; mayors; leading scholars; and chancellors, presidents, and deans of colleges and universities.
The fellowship comes after a rigorous nomination process and an election by the Academy's full membership. Her induction ceremony will take place at the annual James E. Webb dinner at the annual meeting of the National Academcy in Washington DC on November 14, 2012.
