COURSES

MPA5306 Change Management in
Complex Organizations

This course introduces students to the study of organizational theory and change management. Students will learn how complex organizations and agencies function as a whole, and will be able to understand the role of individual leaders within the system. With the understanding of these complex systems, students will be able to talk about creating change to enhance diversity, equity, and inclusion. Students will gain guidance on how to prepare, equip and support individuals within the organization and the organization as a whole to successfully adapt to change in order to drive success and positive social outcomes.

MPA5307 Building Networks
and Coalition Building (3 units)

Public Administration practitioners are consistently confronted with challenging social issues (e.g., homelessness, housing, poverty, healthcare, public safety, and mental health to name a few). Creating policy solutions in this environment requires a shift in mindset to prioritize relationships and recognize the webs of connection which allow the practitioner to recognize how people relate to the issues and organize to find solutions. In this course students will examine the history and current value of networks and the value of coalition building. They will be asked to select a case study to present where the policy outcome was driven by coalition support. Students will learn how to build and grow their professional networks to fulfill the power and potential of their policy making.

MPA5309 Masterplans
and Policy Evolution (3 units)

In this course students will learn how to produce guiding documents for public agencies and non-profit organizations which state what the organization or other entity is and its value to the community, what the organization does, and why it does it. These planning documents provide the foundation for decision making and are an implicit contract between the public agency and the community it serves. This course will enable students to be effective strategists to meet organizational mandates and to provide frameworks for policy implementation. Students in this course will be asked to create and/or evaluate institutional strategic and master planning documents with the goal of being able to return to their organizations and leading planning efforts for the public good.
