The impact of COVID-19 on American Society for Public Administration's scholar and practitioner membership
The novel coronavirus, or SARS-CoV-2, which caused COVID-19, emerged in China in December 2019 and by March 2020 had rapidly spread becoming a global pandemic. The pandemic tested nearly every aspect of the public sector including efforts to respond to, recover from, and mitigate its impacts. This Viewpoint explores COVID-19 impact on US-based public administration scholars and practitioners. The results of a survey conducted for members of the American Society for Public Administration showed that respondents grappled with issues involving institutional trust, organizational inequity and capacity, group-based inequity, health measures, shifts in academic practice, and challenges arising from intergovernmentalism. We conclude with recommendations for future research.
