Through our institutes, centers, special programs, and curriculum-based research projects, faculty and students tackle many of the issues facing governmental and not-for-profit enterprises, such as:
- How to integrate service delivery across organizational and jurisdictional boundaries;
- How to control the cost of public services while serving commonwealth needs;
- How to engage citizens in the Internet era; and,
- How to balance environmental concerns with the necessity of economic development.
The School also sponsors a range of other activities, including conferences, workshops, webcasts, and publications from thought leaders within and outside our university.
