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.
The Program for the Advancement of Research on Conflict and Collaboration (PARCC) at the Maxwell School of Syracuse University is pleased to announce the 2014 winners of the annual E-PARCC teaching case and simulation competition. Congratulations to this year’s winners!
