Executive Master of Public Administration (EMPA) student receives $15,000 grant

By: Texas Southern University

Dr. Michael O. Adams (pictured, above right), founding director, of the Executive Master of Public Administration (EMPA) program at TSU, and EMPA professor Carroll G. Robinson, Esq., (above left) are the recipients of a $15,000 grant from the Criminal Justice REFORM Foundation (REFORM Alliance). The grant will help fund the participation of TSU in beta testing the REFORM Alliance Court Watch App this fall.
The Court Watch App is an innovative solution to increase transparency within the U.S. judicial system. A first of its kind, the app creates an accessible access point, via a mobile phone, for everyday citizens to monitor America’s courtrooms. Throughout the fall semester, approximately 20-30 TSU students will attend court hearings remotely and/or in person and provide weekly feedback in debriefing sessions to directly improve the app’s performance and content.
