Alumna Beverly Godwin to discuss “re-inventing” government

April 9, 1997

ANN ARBOR—University of Michigan alumna Beverly Godwin, a key member of the National Performance Review (NPR)—the Clinton administration’s initiative to reform the way the federal government works—will deliver the U-M’s Staebler Lecture at 3 p.m. April 18 at the U-M Alumni Center.

Free to the public, Godwin’s talk will center on efforts to “re-invent” government, improve the performance of public officials and make government employees more accountable to the public.

Godwin is currently leading the NPR’s efforts to “re-invent” government in the areas of strategic planning, performance measurement and budget formulation and execution. A manager at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services since 1982, Godwin received her master’s degree in public policy from the U-M that same year.

The Staebler Lecture, a program of the Neil Staebler Fund for Political Education, is designed to stimulate thoughtful discussion of questions of democracy and public service. Every other year, a graduate of the U-M School of Public Policy who has made a distinguished contribution to public service is invited to campus to speak. For more information, call (313) 764-3490.
