PPPA 8105 - Managing at the Boundaries: Creative Thinking for Social Change


(6 cr.) Increasingly, the boundaries between governmental levels and sectors have become blurred, requiring leaders and managers to take critical action where these bodies intersect. In this course, students examine the historical and contemporary patterns of interaction between levels of government as well as among the public, private, and nonprofit sectors in the United States. They assess the communications and interactions of stakeholders within a community to learn how these figures handle current issues of social concern. Students also investigate and analyze each socioeconomic sector, including practices and standards; incorporate methods of cross-sector collaboration; and employ their analysis to address an issue or challenge within their own community, lending to positive social change.
