Presidential Management Fellowship Information Session

October 21, 2016, 12 pm, DUC 110 (111)Amy Heath-Carpentier will be leading a program on the Presidential Management Fellowship (PMF).

Bearing the Presidential moniker, the PMF Program is a flagship leadership development program at the entry level for advanced degree candidates. It was created more than three decades ago by Executive Order and has gone through many changes over the years. The Program attracts and selects the best candidates possible, but is really designed with a more narrow focus – developing a cadre of potential government leaders. It provides some sustenance during the first years of employment and encourages development of leadership capabilities. The PMF Program inculcates a lasting bond as well as a spirit of public service, ultimately encouraging and leading to a career in the government.

Advanced Degree means a professional or graduate degree (e.g., master’s, Ph.D., J.D.).

More about the musical: Every once in a while a Broadway musical comes along that surprises, moves and excites audiences in ways only a truly land-mark musical can. The ” groundbreaking,” “life-affirming” and “exquisite” new musical FUN HOME was the event of the Broadway season, receiving raves from critics and audiences alike, winning five 2015 Tony Awards including Best Musical and making history along the way. Based on Alison Bechdel’s best-selling graphic memoir, FUN HOME introduces us to Alison at three different ages as she explores and unravels the many mysteries of her childhood. A refreshingly honest musical about seeing your parents through grown-up eyes, “FUN HOME is extraordinary, a rare beauty that pumps fresh air into Broadway,” The New York Times.
