The Center for Public Management and Regional Affairs engages in applied public policy and management research, technical assistance services, and training and education in the areas of public management and capacity building, local government economic development, planning, and public program evaluation and policy research. The Center’s primary efforts are student-centered research and assistance projects with small/non-metropolitan cities, villages, townships, and counties in Ohio. Center projects are initiated upon request from local governments or by Center staff. The Center is housed in the Department of Political Science at Miami University.
