Vision, Mission and Values

Mission

The mission of UConn’s Master of Public Policy (MPP) program is to provide public service leaders with the analytic, contextual, communication, and ethical skills necessary to lead, manage, and conduct policy analysis and evaluation. Our program emphasizes rigorous analytic methods for assessing alternative policies and evaluating program effectiveness in an increasingly complex and constrained policy environment. Our graduates have the outlook and training necessary to address important public problems in order to make our society better.
