Context of Public Administration - Tribal

Fall 2014 quarter

Taught by

public and nonprofit administration, urban studies
Indigenous studies, Tribal sovereignty and self-government, constitutional legal history and public policy in the US, Canada and New Zealand

Throughout the 1st year Core the fundamentals of administering for the public good in a globalized world are explored. In Fall quarter we examine the foundations of administration and democracy in an environment where boundaries are no longer clearly defined and public administration is practiced everywhere (e.g., governments, tribes, non-profits, for profits, social entrepreneurial organizations, etc).   We focus on the enduring issues of U.S. public administration and the political, social, economic and environmental contexts of effective public administration.  Tribal perspectives are vital in the Tribal Cohort course.
