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 16th Annual E-PARCC Teaching Case and Simulation Competition is open. We invite submissions for the E-PARCC Competition to further stimulate the creation of effective and innovative teaching cases and simulations. E-PARCC, a project of the "Collaborative Governance Initiative," provides free online resources for those who teach conflict and collaboration. Over 3,000 visitors per month from over 40 different countries take advantage of E-PARCC materials. The E-PARCC Competition consists of two tracks: (1) collaborative problem solving, collaborative governance, and network governance and analysis, and (2) collaborative methods in international development. Details can be found here. The deadline is March 12, 2022.
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.
