American Political Science Association to honor SPIA faculty member

Edward Kellough

J. Edward Kellough, a faculty member in the School of Public and International Affairs, is the recipient of the American Political Science Association’s 2019 John Gaus Award and Lectureship.

APSA is the premier association for political science conferences and publications and publishes four academic journals. The John Gaus Award and Lectureship is given annually to honor a lifetime of exemplary scholarship in the joint tradition of political science and public administration.

A professor of public administration and policy and Ph.D. program director in SPIA, Kellough has been a faculty member at UGA since 1988. He previously served as the department head of public administration and policy and MPA director. He specializes primarily in the field of public personnel management, with recently published articles addressing issues such as decreased diversity associated with government contractors and affirmative action in the public sector.

He is currently on the editorial boards of numerous academic journals.

Kellough will accept the award later this month at the annual APSA meeting in Washington, D.C.
