Public Service Values - Public Administration and Public Health MPA/MPH program at The University of Montana

Our public service values serve as guideposts that inform how we apply our MPA mission to inform decisionmaking.

  • Equity: We believe our commitment to cultural awareness across curriculum and scholarship challenges us to reflect and rethink accepted forms of oppression often found in considerations of efficiency and effectiveness. 
  • Serving the Public Interest: Senator Baucus firmly believes “public service is the highest calling.” We believe training current and future generations about the importance of serving the public ethically is essential to serving the public interest.
  • Fairness: One out of three Montanans live more than 60 miles from a college or university. We believe fairness requires public education offers course delivery that is flexible, accessible, and affordable.
  • Integrity: We believe collegiality in the workplace, classroom, and society is essential to a functioning civil society and is driven by decency and respect.
  • Accountability and Transparency: We believe individuals and institutions should be responsive and accountable to the public for their decisions.
