The School of Public Policy (SPP) at the University of Massachusetts Amherst has moved to Thompson Hall from its former spaces across campus in Gordon Hall. All of SPP’s core faculty and staff are now located on the second floor of Thompson. SPP began there in 1998, when what was then called the Center for Public Policy and Administration was established.
“This move will strengthen our relationships with departments located nearby,” explains SPP Director Alasdair Roberts. “Our work is interdisciplinary, so everything the school does is focused on collaboration."
