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.
Announcing the Tenth Annual E-PARCC Competition. The competition seeks to encourage the development of new cases and new simulations to be used in teaching collaborative public management, collaborative governance and/or collaborative problem solving. 10/21/16
We invite you to check out the new Public Engagement Toolbox
(participation.syr.edu), a collection of links to reliable, research-based sources of information for public officials charged with holding meetings to involve the public in decisions. Created under the direction of Prof. Tina Nabatchi, this website offers step-by-step guidance on engaging with communities and constituents effectively.
