About Our Faculty

Professor David Mednicoff speaking to students in a classroom

The UMass Amherst School of Public Policy faculty is growing, with numerous new members added over the past few years and plans to hire more in the coming years.

Our newest additions join a core of talented and highly regarded faculty, many of them joint appointments with other UMass departments, in keeping with the School of Public Policy's commitment to interdisciplinarity.

School of Public Policy faculty bring to the classroom a wide range of specialties, including environmental and sustainability policy, nonprofit management, healthcare policy, social justice and equity, technology and governance, education policy, the role of media in social change, labor economics, public management, policy analysis, immigration and migration policy, and more.
