Dean, Watts College of Public Service & Community Solutions
Arizona State University
Jonathan GS Koppell is the dean of the Watts College of Public Service & Community Solutions at Arizona State University, and the Lattie and Elva Coor Presidential Chair in the ASU School of Public Affairs. Prior to joining ASU in 2010 as director of the School of Public Affairs, he was on the faculty at the Yale School of Management, where he also directed the Millstein Center for Corporate Governance and Performance. His award-winning book World Rule: Accountability, Legitimacy and the Design of Global Governance (2010) reveals the hidden world of “global governance organizations” that generate international rules and standards which shape our economy, policies and lives. Both his academic articles and previous book, The Politics of Quasi-Government, address many key policy issues, including government involvement in for-profit enterprise, regulation of financial institutions and corporate governance. In 2012, he was inducted as a Fellow of the National Academy of Public Administration. He holds a doctorate in political science from University of California, Berkeley and an A.B. from Harvard College.
