Associate Dean Eugene Migliaccio Elected to the National Academy of Public Administration

Milken Institute School of Public Health (Milken Institute SPH) at the George Washington University today announced that Eugene Migliaccio, Associate Dean for Applied Public Health, has been selected by the National Academy of Public Administration (the Academy) for inclusion in its 2020 Class of Academy Fellows.

"I am excited to be selected as a fellow of the National Academy of Public Administration,” said  Migliaccio, who is also a professor of global health at Milken Institute SPH. “This fellowship provides an opportunity to bring my academic and public sector experience together to build a stronger, more efficient government and to enhance leadership in the public administration profession."

As an Associate Dean since August 2019, Migliaccio has been focused on the school’s COVID-19 response, overhauling core practice, the curriculum and establishing a new urban health initiative.

Since 1995, Migliaccio served as an adjunct professor of global health at Milken Institute SPH. He retired from the federal government after serving 35 years in various health care capacities, including being appointed as a member of the Senior Executive Service and a Commissioned Officer in the U.S. Public Health Service and the U.S. Air Force Medical Service Corps.

“I am very pleased to welcome Dr. Migliaccio to the Academy’s 2020 class of Fellows,” said Terry Gerton, President and CEO of the Academy. “Our distinguished Fellows are nationally recognized for their expertise and contributions to the field of public administration and Dr. Migliaccio is no exception. During this especially turbulent time for government, we welcome his experience and perspective as we work collaboratively to find solutions to the Grand Challenges in Public Administration, advance social equity and build resilient communities.”

Selection of the Academy’s new Fellows follows a rigorous review of the individual’s contributions to the field of public administration and policy. A Fellows Nominating Committee makes its recommendations to the full Fellowship, which then votes on those individuals to be elected. The 2020 class joins more than 940 Academy Fellows -- including former cabinet officers, members of Congress, governors, mayors and state legislators, as well as prominent scholars, business executives, and public administrators. 

Induction of the 45 new Fellows will occur during the annual Academy Fall Meeting, which will take place virtually November 5-10.
