First Annual MPA Program Award Luncheon

On February 24, the first Annual MPA Program Award Luncheon will recognize the Houston region’s public official of the year and hear former U.S. diplomat, author, and public diplomacy expert David Firestein address the positives of public service.

We also will host, in conjunction with the Political Science Department, two roundtables, 9 AM- China and US Relations and 2:30 PM Foreign Service Career, both hosted by our luncheon speaker Mr. David Firestein. Both roundtables will be held at the Honors College, M.D. Anderson Library. If you are interested in either topic and would like to attend the roundtables, please contact
