The online Executive Master of Public Administration program (eMPA) at Texas Southern University and the Graduate School of Political Management (GSPM) at the George Washington University in Washington, DC., have partnered to develop a new and engaging experience for eMPA students.

Amid the pandemic, the eMPA Study Abroad program was paused. According to the eMPA program director, Dr. Michael O. Adams, “The study abroad program enhanced the academic experience of our students and we were committed to pivoting to ensure that they could still benefit from immersive experiences beyond the online classroom. Our nation’s capital is the linchpin for both local and international politics and GSPM’s commitment to diversity and experience in training practitioners made them an excellent partner for this effort.”

From March 20-25, 2022, the inaugural group will travel to Washington, DC. The itinerary will include meetings, panels, and guest speaker events with former members of Congress, current Capitol Hill staffers, and nongovernmental organizations organized by GSPM. Topics covered will include climate change, political campaigns, and foreign policy.

In addition to these activities, students will have the opportunity to take part in cultural activities that highlight the historical contributions of African-Americans in the District and students will attend a special reception and
networking event that will feature the president of the National Forum for Black Public Administrators and Congressional Black Caucus staff.

For more questions about the eMPA Program or the eMPA-GSPM partnership, please contact Dr.
Michael O. Adams at or 713.313.7760.
