public administration

Throughout the 1st year Core we explore the fundamentals of administering for the public good in a globalized world. In Winter quarter, we explore what it takes to administer for the public good in a democracy.  Our focus is on doing administration (management, organizational theory, etc.) with an emphasis on democracy, democratic processes and the roles and relationships of administrators and citizens in the complex web of democracy. Tribal perspectives are vital in the Tribal Cohort course.
