Master of Public Administration (MPA)


The MPA program offers a Mentoring Program—which is open to all MPA students—that matches our students with area practitioners. This program helps facilitate voluntary relationships between mentors and students for half an academic year.

The goals of this program are to:

  • Expose USF MPA students to the actual work environments, responsibilities, and interactions of professional administrative positions in Florida.
  • Bring USF MPA students into a mentor relationship with a practicing local administrator or nonprofit managers.
  • Help USF MPA students begin to develop their professional career networks.
  • Further facilitate the relationship between university programs, sections, and local administrators or nonprofit managers.

The application, process, and deadline is announced via email to current students only.
