The Texas State University System Board of Regents approved a request to change the Master of
Arts in Public Administration degree at Sul Ross to a Master of Public Administration.
At its quarterly meeting last week at the AT&T Conference Center in Austin, the board also
acknowledged nearly 880 thousand dollars in gifts and donations.
Sul Ross sought approval of an M.P.A. to increase degree marketability for public administration
graduates.
An M.P.A. is the most frequently required degree in public administration job postings and Sul
Ross had been the only state university to offer an M.A. in the field.
Sul Ross Executive Vice President and Provost Dr. Jim Case said the designation change will not
alter curriculum content or program length.
Grants approved include 250 thousand dollars from the James A. “Buddy” Davidson Charitable
Foundation.
Others include 15 thousand dollars from the Big Bend Ranch Rodeo to the Rodeo Scholarship
Fund and ten thousand from the Native Plant Society the Dr. A. Michael Powell Biology Fund.
