Makara Receives Administration and Leadership Studies Research Award

The Administration and Leadership Studies Program congratulates John Makara on receiving the Outstanding Graduate Student Research Award.

Makara received the award at the annual awards luncheon held by the School of Graduate Studies and Research and the IUP Research Institute on April 2, 2012.

His dissertation, entitled, “A Qualitative Content Analysis of John F. Kennedy’s Public Papers Between 1960 and 1963 on the Peace Corps,” examines the beliefs, values, and leadership of John F. Kennedy during the implementation of the Peace Corps, and serves as a model for qualitative dissertations.  Makara spent a week at the John F. Kennedy Library in Boston analyzing Kennedy’s public papers regarding the Peace Corps, analyzed documents and major newspaper articles on the Peace Corps, and conducted an interview with Harris Wofford (a member of President Kennedy’s cabinet and an organizer of the original Peace Corps task force).
