Academic Programs

Through targeted skill-focused training and academic courses, NPCC furthers its mission of building collaborative capacity and developing the next wave of collaborative practitioners in helping undergraduate and graduate students gain awareness of how these processes can empower communities to resolve public issues and implement sustainable solutions. 

NPCC is at the forefront in pioneering new and innovative practices along the broad spectrum of collaborative governance. Theories and principles gleaned through continuous learning from staff reflection and case analysis are integrated into our student courses.

Additionally, project managers in Oregon Consensus, Oregon Solutions and the National Programs act as mentors to graduate student interns on projects throughout the state.
