Welcome to the Public Administration and Urban Policy Ph.D. Student Organization (PAUPers) homepage.
PAUPers provides a venue for students to collaborate on research projects, share and discuss ideas, and to engage with the ODU campus and greater Hampton Roads communities. PAUPers works to build a strong student community by offering events and activities such as the Scholarly Café, guest speakers, comprehensive exam and professional preparation workshops, community service, and social gatherings. PAUPers represents the PhD student members on issues that impact our academic program and opportunities that build a greater presence on the ODU campus. At the core of PAUPers, we are enthusiastic about highlighting the interests of our members and offering relevant opportunities to create innovative and effective academicians and practitioners in public administration and policy.
Please visit our website regularly for upcoming meetings and events. We welcome your ideas about ways that PAUPers can better serve your interests.
