Abstract/ Summary

The Master of Public Administration (MPA) program was suspended by the Chancellor of the University of Maine System on March 2, 2011. The suspension was based on a recommendation by the Academic Program Prioritization Working Group (APPWG) and a decision by the President of the University of Maine. The MPA program was housed in the Department of Public Administration. Following the suspension, no new students were admitted into the program. A plan was put in place to teach out required Public Administration classes and allow students who at the time were in the program to finish it, assuming normal progress and satisfactory academic performance. All classes that existing students needed to graduate were offered by the end of summer 2012. Students received extensive advising about program requirements and the possibility that the program might eventually be closed.
