Professor Olha Krupa, who teaches in the Master of Public Administration program, was invited to join the prestigious research-oriented seminar for young scholars at the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy. As a Lincoln Institute Scholar, Krupa participated with a distinguished group of researchers, public officials, economists, policy makers, and others who examine issues related to land use, tax policy, and urban economics.  The group met in May in Cambridge, MA.

“The nonprofit, nonpartisan Lincoln Institute is a leader in land use and tax policy research,” Krupa said. “Over three days, the group discussed major research and policy considerations that integrate theory and practice.”

Olha received her Ph.D. from Indiana University. Her research and scholarship focus on state and local government finance and finances of the transition economies.

The College of Arts and Sciences, the largest college in Seattle University, offers 42 undergraduate majors, 37 minors, and 7 master’s degrees. The college’s Institute of Public Service offers a Master of Public Administration and a Master of Nonprofit Leadership.
