Lecture Celebrates CRC's 100th Anniversary

On May 19, 2016, the Graduate Program in Public Administration will host the annual Lent Upson Lecture, in partnership with the Citizens Research Council of Michican, to commorate the CRC's 100-year anniversary. This year's topic will embrace the partnerhsip between both entities, and will broaden coversations of nonpartisanship in the age of polarization. Commentary will be provided by Eric Lupher and Paul Ryan, the current and past presidents of the CRC, respectively. To provide further focus on the issues, Rob Henken, President of the Public Policy Forum of Wisconsin and of the Governmental Research Association, will provide the keynote address.

The annual lecture series is named in honor of Dr. Lent Upson, one of the pioneers in the study of public administration. He founded the Graduate Program in Public Administration in 1935 while serving as the first Director of the Detroit Bureau of Municipal Research—now the CitizensResearch Council of Michigan. The CRC, established in 1916, works to bring about sound governmental policy through factual, independent research. The CRC is a privately funded, not-for-profit that has made significant contributions in state and local government organization and finance.
