Why did you choose the SPEA Connect MPA program?

As a veteran and an IU alumnus, the choice was simple. The flexibility of the program and the ability to be virtually a part of the #1 program in the nation, in classes with top caliber students and professors with a wealth of experience made this decision a no brainer for me.

How has the flexibility of the online program helped you to balance all of your responsibilities?

As a father of three boys ages 10, 13, and 14 that travels 3-5 days a week for work covering the entire state of Ohio while still having other volunteer and political responsibilities, the design of the online program made accomplishing my goals while balancing life possible. For years I thought doing that was not possible, but this program put that goal in reach.
