Faculty w/Admin Appointment


Barry Bozeman is Regents' Professor and Arizona Centennial Professor of Technology Policy and Public Management and research director of the Center of Organization Research and Design. He is affiliated professor at Australian National University and Tsinghua University. Previous positions include Regents' Professor and Ander Crenshaw Endowed Chair of Public Policy; University of Georgia; Regents’ Professor of Public Policy and Founding Director, School of Public Policy at Georgia Tech; Professor of Public Administration at Syracuse University where he was the Maxwell School’s founding director of the Center for Technology and Information Policy. Bozeman’s research focuses on science and technology policy, public management, organization theory and higher education policy. He is the author or co-author of 17 books including most recently Public Values Leadership (Johns Hopkins University, 2021), with Michael Crow.  The book, designed primarily for practitioners and students, sythesizes Bozeman's theory of public values and Crow's practitioner experience.  Other books include "Strength in Numbers: Research Collaboration Effectiveness" (Princeton University Press,  2017), with Jan Youtie, "Rules and Red Tape: A Prism for Public Administration Theory Development" (Sharpe Publishing, 2011), with Mary Feeney, and "Public Values and Public Interest" (Georgetown University Press, 2007). The latter book won the American Political Science Association’s Herbert Simon Award for best book published in public administration and public affairs. Bozeman’s "All Organizations Are Public" (Jossey-Bass, 1987) helped establish a new research and theory approach to “publicness.” Professor Bozeman’s research articles have appeared in every major U.S. journal in the fields of public policy and public administration and his research has been summarized in several publications, such as Nature, Times of London, Nature Medicine, Science, Chronicle of Higher Education and New York Times, among others.

Bozeman's current research focuses on research collaboration; the credibility and use of scientific information in policy-making; managerial and public values leadership; the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on scientific productivity; bureaucratic rules, rule compliance and organizational pathologies; public values in public policy; higher education policy; and bureaucratic pathologies, including impersonalized "robotic bureaucracy"

Bozeman is an elected fellow of both the American Association for the Advancement Science and the National Academy of Public Administration. He co-edits the Journal of Technology Transfer and is a senior editorial advisor to Research Evaluation.  Awards received include the Charles Levine Memorial Award of the American Society for Public Administration; the National Association of Schools of Public Affairs and Administration research award; and the the 2013 Public Management Research Association’s H. George Frederickson Award for lifetime achievements and contributions to public management research.
