Morgen Johansen, PhD

My primary research agenda focuses on questions about how managerial practice differs across the public, private and nonprofit sectors.  A secondary research agenda focuses on questions of diversity and inclusion. The unifying theme of my research is the social justice and equity implications of various governance structures.  


My research has been featured in the Journal of Public Administration Research and Theory, Public Administration Review, the American Review of Public Administration, and Nonprofit Management and Leadership.   

As program director, I oversaw major curriculum changes to earn the full 7 year accreditation of our Masters of Public Adminsitration program for the very first time in 2017.  Our Program is now the only NASPAA accreditated MPA program in the entire state of Hawaii. I also started a graduate certificate and undergraduate courses in nonprofit management, which are again the only such offerings in the state of Hawaii.
