"I realized that the Brockport MPA program would allow me to become more marketable to employers in a multitude of fields. What I have learned from my fellow students in the MPA program is both enlightening and beneficial to my success. The classes allow you to create networks and helpful contacts for the future. I want to make a difference in our government and help support public officials and organizations that promote growth and opportunity for our youth."
