The Public Administration Student Association (PASA)/ICMA Student Chapter student organization received third place in the International City/County Management Association (ICMA)’s Best Event Contest for their Annual Alumni-Student Conference.
"The student chapter at the University of North Texas (UNT) won third place with the 55th Annual Alumni-Student Conference. The chapter worked alongside the UNT Public Administration Alumni Board to bring together UNT alumni, students, faculty, and local administrators to celebrate local government, discuss developments in the field and new tactics for improving local governments, and connect through sharing experiences and conducting mock interviews."
The conference brought together 170 alumni and students on the UNT campus in April 2017. PASA's mission is to create a network of students and professionals to enhance the educational experience of students in the Department of Public Administration.
