“The location of the Wilder School in downtown Richmond and the quality of the academic program made it a perfect fit for me. Having evening classes gave me the flexibility I needed to pursue my master's while working.”— Felix Sarfo-Kantanka Jr., M.P.A., 2001, External Affairs Manager, Dominion Energy and former Virginia Deputy Secretary of Administration
