Public manager program lauded
Kansas Secretary of Administration Duane Goossen and Provost and Executive Vice Chancellor Richard Lariviere addressed participants from KU's Certified Public Manager program and their guests during a reception in Liberal on Sept. 26. The Public Management Center, a unit of Continuing Education, is again offering the year-long CPM program in southwest Kansas for local, state and federal workers. The monthly class rotates among sites in Liberal, Dodge City and Garden City to accommodate area students. Since the Certified Public Manager program was established in 1993, more than 800 public managers have received this nationally recognized credential.
