Public Administration and Urban Studies Student Association (PAUSSA)

The purpose of PAUSSA is to create a sense of community among students and faculty within the department and to facilitate student engagement in matters of importance that affect the department, the university, and the broader community.

Organizational activities include monthly meetings, canned food drives, opportunities for volunteerism (on an individual and organizational level), various socials, and professional development (e.g. resume-building) workshops.
