Political Science and Public Administration

Faculty & Staff

Dr. Sunday E. Ubokudom


Professor Sunday E. Ubokudom joined the faculty of the University of Toledo in 1995. Prior to this, he worked for several years in various mid- and upper-level administrative positions in Kansas State government. His teaching and research goals are heavily influenced by his conviction that public administration is the engine that drives other endeavors in a society. Consequently, he believes that the education of public managers cannot be reduced to excessive vocational training. Rather, PA education must be broad, analytical, and incorporate liberal education as a vital component. Dr. Ubokudom's research interests are primarily in health care organization, delivery, and management.
