Nothing ‘Mini’ About Topics in Rutgers’ Mini-MPA™ Program

Michael Theokas

Former Scarlet Knights’ offensive tackle Michael Theokas, RC’95, has owned restaurants and had a budding political career as a borough councilman in Hightstown. But the lure of public service led him to leave the restaurant business to become the borough’s fulltime business administrator last year.

Despite his wide-ranging experience as a businessman and public official, Theokas felt he could use some additional coaching for his new role.

“When I got the job in Hightstown, I immediately looked to learn more about this field and improve my job performance,” he said.

The “mini” master’s in public administration – Mini-MPA™ – a noncredit certificate program offered by Rutgers’ Center for Executive Leadership in Government at its headquarters in downtown New Brunswick, fit the bill.

Theokas completed the program last spring and says he learned “a great deal” from it.

U.S. Veteran Trains for Fulfilling Sports Turf Management Career at Rutgers

Picture of Eric Harshman watering turf field

The seeds of Eric Harshman’s second career took root during his 12-year enlistment in the Indiana Air National Guard. That’s when he began helping out at his in-laws’ golf course, and discovered a passion for turf.

“I fell in love with it, working outdoors with my hands,” recalled the former aircraft armament technician.

He did three tours of duty in the Middle East, loading aircraft with 5,000-pound bombs and fixing fighter jet weapon systems. Standing on a roof at his base in Qatar, he could see for miles – and there was no green.

When Harshman’s tours ended, his commanding officers granted him time to attend Rutgers Professional Golf Turf Management School in the fall of 2007.
