USC Price School of Public Policy Emeritus Professor Chester Newland received the 2012 George Graham Award for Exceptional Service by the National Academy of Public Administration (NAPA). The award was presented during NAPA’s fall meeting in Washington, D.C., this past November.

Established in 1967 and chartered by the U.S. Congress in 1984, NAPA consists of professional and academic leaders in public management. It provides objective advice and practical solutions to help the government at the local, state and federal levels improve effectiveness, efficiency and accountability.

The Graham Award is named after NAPA’s first president, and recognizes sustained and extraordinary contributions toward the academy becoming a stronger and more respected organization, according to the NAPA website.

Newland – the Duggan Professor Emeritus in Public Administration at USC – has been a NAPA fellow since 1975.
