  • 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.
