January 17, 2013

Ford School alum Manny Teodoro (PhD '07) has been named the recipient of the 2013 Book Award presented by the Section on Public Administration Research (SPAR) of the American Society for Public Administration (ASPA). The award is given to new works with the potential to make a lasting contribution to literature on public administration. Teodoro's book, Bureaucratic Ambition: Careers, Motives, and the Innovative Administrator, uses case studies and quantitative analysis to advance the view that institutional design can lead to more entrepreneurial public administration executives.

Teodoro is an assistant professor of political science at Colgate University. He earned his BA from Seattle University, his MPA from Cornell University, and his PhD in public policy and political science from the University of Michigan. The first chapter of Teodoro's dissertation is used in the Ford School's PubPol 587 course, "Public Management."
