Welcome to the School of Government
Public Policy

The School of Government and Public Policy was formed in 2009 by combining two highly ranked programs – political science and public administration and policy - bringing them under a single roof. Located in the College of Social & Behavioral Sciences, SGPP is one of the largest schools at the University of Arizona and is uniquely situated to serve as a new model for public affairs education by promoting high-caliber research, teaching, community outreach, and civic leadership.

By offering leading programs in political science, international relations, public policy, and public management, SGPP prepares men and women for leadership positions in the public and nonprofit sectors.


H. Brinton Milward, the director of the University of Arizona School of Government and Public Policy, is the recipient of the prestigious H. George Frederickson Lifetime Achievement Award. Milward also holds the Melody S. Robidoux Foundation Fund Chair in Collaborative Governance.
Congratulations to Professor Faten Ghosn- she is the recipient of the 2019 SBS Graduate Teaching Award
