Four recent graduates (Spring 2018) of Florida Gulf Coast University’s (FGCU) Master of Public Administration (MPA) program will summarize their capstone projects; all of which are directly related to local government issues in Florida. Each student will highlight his or her research findings and offer recommendations for consideration. This is FCCMA’s first webinar focusing exclusively on current local government research by MPA students. A copy of all four capstone papers will be provided in the file share section during the webinar and will be available for download.
