Context of Public Administration

Fall 2011 quarter

Laurance Geri public administration , Lee Lyttle public administration, urban planning, librarianship , Doreen Swetkis public and nonprofit administration, public policy, urban studies
Throughout the 1st year Core the fundamentals of administering for the public good in a globalized world are explored. In Fall quarter we examine the foundations of administration and democracy in an environment where boundaries are no longer clearly defined and public administration is practiced everywhere (e.g., governments, tribes, non-profits, for profits, social entrepreneurial organizations, etc).   We focus on the enduring issues of U.S. public administration and the political, social, economic and environmental contexts of effective public administration.
