Mission

The mission of the UMass Lowell MPA program is to prepare students for successful careers in the public and non-profit sectors through the development of managerial, communication, and analytical skills, and through learning experiences that emphasize the values and ethics of public service.  Reflecting the University’s mission of service to the Commonwealth and the region, the program also seeks to respond to needs of public agencies and community-serving institutions for a diverse and well-trained workforce.
