The MPA program and Kentucky State University seek to serve and have a positive and meaningful impact on the citizens of the Commonwealth of Kentucky, the region, and the world. The MPA program accomplishes this in part by preparing students to meet the call of public service in leadership and management; providing students with the knowledge and skills to navigate in dynamic work environments; and advancing diversity and promoting social equity. This is realized by working with state agencies, our alumni and local governments to place our graduates in positions where they have the greatest opportunity to lead and manage public resources for the betterment of society.
