Nabatchi Wins Moynihan Award
Tina Nabatchi, assistant professor of public administration and international affairs in the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs, is the winner of this year’s Daniel Patrick Moynihan Award for Teaching and Research, which was established by the former senator and Maxwell professor to recognize an outstanding nontenured faculty member.
Nabatchi, who joined the Maxwell School in 2007, is known for her exceptional work in the classroom. Her teaching and research focus on citizen participation and deliberation, collaborative governance, conflict resolution and challenges in public administration. Her research has been published in the leading academic journals in her field, as well as in book chapters and stand-alone research reports. Her work is frequently cited, and she is in demand as a speaker at conferences held in the United States and in other countries. Nabatchi’s new co-edited book, “Democracy in Motion: Evaluating the Practice and Impact of Deliberative Civic Engagement” (Oxford University Press, 2012), provides a comprehensive assessment of the topic.
She also serves as co-director of CNYSpeaks, a Maxwell School project designed to engage residents of the Central New York area on issues such as the revitalization of downtown, developing arts and entertainment and civility in public discourse.
