Administrative History

The George W. Romney Institute of Public Management (1998-) is a program designed to create graduates who exemplify the ideals of George W. Romney.

A professional education in public administration at Brigham Young University began in the mid-1960s with a Master of Science degree offered through the Department of Political Science. Within ten years, in an effort to better prepare students for careers in the public sector, the degree was changed to a Master of Public Administration and administered by the recently established Institute of Public Management. The Institute emphasized a vital focus on improving management practice in government, communities, and other arenas for public service, and later became part of the newly established BYU School of Management (later named the Marriott School of Management). In 1998, the Institute was renamed in order to reflect the values and work ethic of George W. Romney, former governor of Michigan. Romney’s ideals of public service, volunteerism, personal integrity, and working for the greater good encapsulate the goals of the Institute. The George W. Romney Institute of Public Management seeks to create graduates who will exemplify these ideals as servants to the public.
