Through the program, leaders are equipped with ways to enact positive organizational change through public service. There is a focus on generating value for the public through innovative practices, experiential learning, and personal and professional growth.
The Certified Public Manager Consortium Executive Council of the Board of Directors unanimously voted to accredit the Ohio CPM Program.
“Every person interviewed indicated that this program is well needed and fills educational and leadership gaps,” reported Mary DeLorenzo, overseer of the CPM Program in New Mexico. “Kudos for creating an atmosphere for collaborative growth and learning even among seasoned public servants.”
