Take Barton Wechsler, dean of MU’s Harry S Truman School of Public Affairs, who was recently elected to the National Academy of Public Administration (NAPA).

The U.S. Congress created NAPA to help public sector leaders meet the important and varied management challenges of today and anticipate those of the future.

Wechsler joins more than 700 other trusted and experienced NAPA fellows in improving the quality, performance and accountability of government.

In addition to serving as dean of the Truman School, Wechsler teaches graduate courses in public management, including strategic planning and performance measurement, organization dynamics and leadership, and social innovation.

Wechsler’s research on public management has been published in Public Administration Review, Administration and Society, Journal of the American Planning Association, Public Productivity and Management Review, Review of Public Personnel Administration, other academic and practitioner journals, and numerous edited books. He serves on the editorial board of Public Productivity and Management Review.
