Association of Schools of Public Administration in the Philippines (ASPAP)

About Us

The Association of Schools of Public Administration in the Philippines, Incorporated (ASPAP) is a non-stock national organization of college and universities in the Philippines offering public administration/management education programs.

The proliferation of schools in public administration/management which is indicative of the increasing recognition of public administration as a distinct discipline, and of its potential contribution toward the professionalization of the Philippine Civil Service, has made it imperative for these schools to pool their institutional resources with the end in view of improving the content and methodology of the discipline.

ASPAP was organized on February 12, 1979 and registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission on December 5, 1980.

Since then, it has been spearheading programs geared toward the development and improvement of public administration/management education. Toward this end, ASPAP sponsors public lectures on public administration, conducts "roving" seminars on instructional methodologies, and collects and distributes informative materials to member schools.The Association holds its regular meetings once every two months, on the second Wednesday of the month. Special meetings are called whenever necessary.
