Alumni Spotlight

Hogan Medlin 2023

System Director for Strategic Change UNC HealthThe UNC MPA program has helped me grow as a public service leader, connecting theory and concepts to real-world application and strategy. As a leader in change management, so much of the MPA program centers around leading teams and people through change, particularly in the public sector where we work to address our most wicked challenges. Working in a public health organization through the global pandemic while taking MPA courses was an unparalleled experience of truly bridging real-world leadership challenges with course content on a weekly basis.
