  • Teaching Collaboration and Collaborative Problem Solving

    Today’s public managers often work in multi-organizational networks to solve problems that cannot be solved easily by single organizations. E-PARCC provides teaching tools that prepare future public administrators with skills that will help them collaborate successfully across organizations in public, private, and nonprofit sectors. Our award-winning simulations and cases actively engage students in creative, collaborative work to solve problems and foster change in the real world.

  • Seventh Annual E-PARCC Teaching Case and Simulation Competition

    PARCC invites applicants to submit new cases and simulations to be used in teaching collaborative public management, networks, collaborative governance, and collaborative problem solving. Apply by Feb. 15, 2014.
