Project on Public Leadership & Action

Project on Public Leadership and Action (PPLA) is a new, faculty-led, research-focused initiative on campus. 

PPLA grew out of a series of informal conversations between faculty with shared interests in doing values-based, practically-relevant work related to topics including (but not limited to) social change, democratic practice, and public leadership.  In 2013-2014, PPLA is launching an inaugural year of pilot programming designed to create a dynamic space for faculty to further define the mission, activities, and purposes of the Project.
