Nancy Augustine has taught at TSPPPA since 2006, shortly after completing her PhD here. She was one of the very first research assistants at the George Washington Institute of Public Policy (GWIPP) and helped to get the old Public Policy Student Association off the ground. She also completed her undergraduate degree at GW in the days when Lloyd Elliott was president of the university.  In ways, coming back to GW is like coming home.

Dr. Augustine's teaching and research are informed by more than 25 years of experience in various aspects of local government policy formation, research, implementation and evaluation, including more than ten years of experience as an urban planner at the local government level. In recent years, she has worked for the Pew Charitable Trusts, the National Conference of State Legislatures and Economic Systems, Inc.
