CPMRA booth
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


JUNE 2017 - NEWS & HIGHLIGHTS


The CPMRA is moving...

After 26 years in the basement of Harrison Hall, the Center will be relocating to a new office on the third floor of Harrison Hall. The move is something of a return to our roots, as the Center started in an office on the third floor. We will be in a temporary space while the new space is being constructed this summer. We look forward to starting the 2017-18 academic year above ground and with windows overlooking the beautiful Miami campus!

Demolition in new office
