Dr. Richard Greggory Johnson III Selected as a Fellow by the National Academy of Public Administration

SAN FRANCISCO (September 24, 2020) – The University of San Francisco announced that Dr. Richard Greggory Johnson III has been selected by the National Academy of Public Administration (the Academy) for inclusion in its 2020 Class of Academy Fellows, in recognition of his years of public administration service and expertise. Induction of the 45 new Fellows will occur during the annual Academy Fall Meeting, which will take place virtually November 5-10.

“I am very pleased to welcome Dr. Richard Greggory Johnson III to the Academy’s 2020 class of Fellows,” said Terry Gerton, President and CEO of the Academy. “Our distinguished Fellows are nationally recognized for their expertise and contributions to the field of public administration and Dr. Richard Greggory Johnson III is no exception. During this especially turbulent time for government, we welcome his experience and perspective as we work collaboratively to find solutions to the Grand Challenges in Public Administration, advance social equity and build resilient communities.”

Selection of the Academy’s new Fellows follows a rigorous review of the individual’s contributions to the field of public administration and policy. A Fellows Nominating Committee makes its recommendations to the full Fellowship, which then votes on those individuals to be elected. The 2020 class joins more than 940 Academy Fellows -- including former cabinet officers, members of Congress, governors, mayors and state legislators, as well as prominent scholars, business executives, and public administrators.
