Chengxin-Michael Xu

Welcome! I am Chengxin-Michael Xu, an assistant professor in the Institute of Public Service at Seattle University . I got my PhD from School of Public Affairs and Administration (SPAA) at Rutgers University-Newark. I research topics of public administration and nonprofit management, including the sector stereotype in social service market, inter-sectoral collaboration and competition. My studies draw on insights from theories of organizational behavior, social psychology, behavioral science, and sociology. My current research uses an ecological approach to investigate people's perceptual and behavioral reactions to the hybridization of social mission and commercial mode in the traditional nonprofit sector.
