The La Follette School of Public Affairs is seeking client-based projects for its Introduction to Public Management course. Students in the graduate-level course work in teams to complete the projects under the direction of Director and Professor Don Moynihan.
Applications from public-, nonprofit-, or private-sector organizations are due January 10, 2018. Alumni are encouraged to apply.
Based on the client’s request, each group produces a written analysis and presentation. Topics reflect the client’s interests related to a management challenge or issue. There is no cost to clients.
The most important element for assessing the viability of public management projects is a clear and high-profile client with a contact person in a position to respond to students and facilitate conversations.
- Organization name
- Client sponsor names, and (if different) person who will serve as the primary point of contact and liaison with the student teams throughout the project, and contact information for both
- Brief description (1 to 2 paragraphs) of the key questions to be addressed
Moynihan will review project proposals and respond to prospective clients in mid-January.
