Promoting public interest while improving governmental responsiveness, effectiveness, and efficiency has never been more important. This course will teach civil servants how to forge ahead, and succesfully navigate a landscape where legislators wage war with each other over job creation, healthcare, the economy, and skirmish over numerous other public policy matters.
Students will learn how to integrate values into their worldviews that will help them become leaders who advocate for public interests while embracing an accountable, constitutionally based, limited, and transparent government. The certificate will explicitly incorporate the principles of servant leadership that enhance both the character and competency of students. They will be exposed to and practice both servanthood (promoting the best long-term interests of the key stakeholders) and stewardship (managing human, financial and information resources with excellence).
