P.AD-817 Administrative Strategies of State and Local Government

This course is built on the premise that state and local government leaders have an obligation to fully develop the human resources, network relationships and physical assets available to them so as to increase the value of their organizations to the public. Through case studies, students will explore the successes and failures of state and local government leaders and their strategies in major policy arenas, such as public safety, health and welfare, education, environment and economic development. Through readings, students will examine state and local government structures and functions, political culture, and administrative reforms.
