At the heart of the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy reputation for excellence lies its faculty - a diverse and growing community of scholars and practitioners well known for teaching and research expertise in a variety of fields.
The School's full-time faculty members pursue active research, teaching and consulting agendas. Working individually, with colleagues, and with students, they develop knowledge about and seek solutions to today's most critical problems of public policy and management. In addition to its regular full-time staff, the School's adjunct and visiting faculty members are accomplished professionals from a wide variety of fields who teach courses that bridge the gap between research and the practical application of knowledge.
While the above can be said of many public policy programmes around the world, what makes the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy unique is the principal focus of its faculty members on applying public policy methods and approaches to the Asian region. In recent years for example, faculty members have been involved in regional anti-corruption efforts on behalf of the World Bank; they have been project leaders on Asian Development Bank missions to assess rural airport development and transportation linkages between Mongolia and China; they have served as consultants to a variety of United Nations and non-governmental agencies on social development, poverty alleviation, and governance matters, and they have collectively delivered several executive programmes on policy formulation, implementation and evaluation for the United Nations Development Program for participants from Asia and Africa.
