Welcome to the PA Gateway


The field of public affairs and administration is full of rich information through a variety of resources. Those print, electronic, and multi-media “gems” are often invisible to professionals, students, and even academia. Over centuries of thoughtful research and reflection, the resources focusing on the improved public and nonprofit sector performance have become substantial. Since the turn of the 21st century, these resources have multiplied to an exuberant amount, with the potential of causing the research of appropriate and valuable insights to become overwhelming.

The Public Administration Gateway is an original initiative of the School of Public Affairs and Administration at Rutgers University-Newark and the American Society for Public Administration (ASPA). It is being launched as a comprehensive and accessible portal for the core resources in the field, in which many are accessible at no charge. The goal is to enable public managers to deliver services to citizens as promised, encourage students to find and build successful careers, and allow academia to utilize expanded sets of qualitative and quantitative data in their research.

We invite you to explore the PA Gateway through over twenty pathways to a rich mix of valuable resources. Feedback, comments and suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
