The first webinar, titled research to practice, is sponsored by Suffolk University. It will be held on Thursday, Nov. 2 at 1 p.m. ET. This webinar will focus on making research accessible outside of academia and conducting research that matters for those practicing in the field. Public administration produces a wealth of research on an annual basis—but how much of it matters to those in the field? And why does it matter? Some of the discipline's thought leaders will discuss this topic and help students and new professionals (and others!) figure out how best they can use the research being produced.
