The faculty of the Trachtenberg School regularly provide expertise that informs the policy debates that rage in Washington, D.C., and across the country. They are called upon by members of the media, respected think tanks and government officials to share knowledge and research.
Their resumes and their research are impressive. But they are more than academics. They are the backbone of the welcoming Trachtenberg School community. Faculty love teaching and finding time to help students think through concepts from class, talk about career paths and next steps and getting to know Washington, D.C.
The interdisciplinary faculty of the Trachtenberg School are National Academy of Public Administrations Fellows, published in top journals, editors at several prestigious journals and the authors of books and white papers that shape the academic study of public administration, public policy, economics, political science, sociology and the broader social science disciplines. They are also world travelers, great bakers, trivia champions and even some outstanding athletes.
