Diana Beck

Administrative Director, Public and Nonprofit Leadership Center

Diana Beck is the administrative director of the Public and Nonprofit Leadership Center and works on a number of public sector redesign projects with the Future Services Institute. Diana comes to Minneapolis from New York City, where she spent more than 13 years working and teaching at New York University’s Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service. Diana began her public sector career as a research associate at the Center for Health and Public Service Research, where she worked on multiple projects focused on improving the systems that serve vulnerable populations. She is thrilled to return to this focus through her work with FSI.  Diana holds a Master of Public Administration from NYU and has taught coursework in microeconomics, statistics, public speaking, and the politics and economics of hunger and food security. 

Diana looks forward to exploring her new home and is most excited about her Minnesota State Park permit. So far, Diana enjoys Sociable Cider Werks and the Midtown Greenway (not necessarily together). She does not miss the New York subway.
