Eric Zeemering is Associate Professor and MPA Director at the University of Georgia, School of Public and International Affairs and Co-Editor of State and Local Government Review. An expert on local government, he has been quoted in The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Baltimore Sun, Chicago Tribune, Wall Street Journal, and other media outlets.
My research, teaching and public engagement help students, local elected officials and public managers understand collaboration, intergovernmental relations, and innovations in service delivery. As a former local elected official, I understand the challenges of local government from the viewpoint of the council table. I explore the collective action that emerges to address problems that span beyond a single local government's borders. I am dedicated to aiding students and local governments improve their communities and the quality of local governance.
