Carnegie Mellon University announced that Ramayya Krishnan, dean of the Heinz College of Information Systems and Public Policy, has been selected by the National Academy of Public Administration for inclusion in its 2019 Class of Academy Fellows, in recognition of his years of public administration service and expertise. Induction of the 51 new fellows will occur during the Academy's annual Fall Meeting, Nov. 7-8 in Arlington, Virginia.

Krishnan was recognized for his role in helping to create innovative partnerships across the public, private and university sectors. His experience working on the IT and Services Advisory Board chaired by Gov.

"I am very pleased to welcome Ramayya Krishnan to the 2019 class of Fellows," said Academy President and CEO Terry Gerton. "Our Fellows are nationally recognized for their expertise and contributions to the field of public administration, and Ramayya Krishnan is no exception. The 2019 class is an outstanding group that will enrich our Fellowship, especially as we unveil the Grand Challenges in Public Administration and collaborate across the field to find solutions."
