All three sections of 587 in Winter Term 2011 will continue to emphasize common themes such as performance management, strategic planning, and inter-institutional network development. But they will offer distinct differences in terms of applied content, reflecting the growing diversity of the FS student body. Indeed the original course was developed at a point when almost all FS students headed to public service in the US federal government. That obviously has changed and so this revised set of offerings is intended to respond to that diversity and give students greater ability to tailor core course selection to their own interests and needs.
Public Management 587: Non-Profit Organization. Megan Tompkins-Stange will teach this section and use case material drawn primarily from the non-profit sector. The course will consider the evolving role of non-profits in both the United States and abroad.
