CSUSB MPA - California County Cohort Program

This online program launched fall 2019 is the result of a partnership with the CSUSB public administration program and the California State Association of Counties (CSAC) Institute for Excellence in County Government, a professional, practical continuing education program for senior county staff and elected officials. Each year, dozens of county workers enroll or graduate from the program, which is one of few in the state.
