PUBPOL 583: Science, Technology, and Public Policy (4 credits)
Instructor: Howard McCurdy
Meets: each Wednesday for the full summer term, 5:50-8:30 pm (June 21-August 16)
Description: From the spaceship to the computer chip, public officials work hard to promote innovation through science and technology. In turn, advances in science and technology invite governmental response. This course examines important public policy issues associated with science and technology, including the debate over how much government support is necessary to spur research and innovation, the role of government as a regulator of technology, the manner in which technology alters the way in which scientific initiatives are organized, the clash between scientific findings and political ideology, and the governance challenges arising from 21stcentury technologies. Students also examine impending technologies, the relationship between culture and technology, and specific policy issues of interest to students in the class. The instructor is a graduate of the University of Washington and Cornell University, a professor in the School of Public Affairs at American University in Washington, D.C., and a frequent visitor to the Evans School of Public Policy and Governance. He has authored seven books on the U.S. space program.
PUBPOL 598 A: Leading Change from the Inside Out (1 credit)
Instructors: Michelle Gislason and Jennifer Martin
Meets: Friday, July 14, 9:10-4:00 pm, and Saturday, July 15, 9:10-3:20 pm only
Description: We live in a rapidly changing and uncertain world where our organizations and communities must constantly shift and evolve. As a result, leaders today must not only be effective in helping others navigate change but also be able to adapt personally. Many times leaders get stuck in thinking only about the technical and strategy changes and overlook the people side of change and transitions. This one-credit, two-day course will start from the “inside out,” exploring not only our own responses to change, but also the relationship building, shared vision, and systemic approach required to be a successful change leader.
PUBPOL 598 B: The Role of the Military in International Development and Humanitarian Crisis Response (1 credit)
Instructor: Jason Smith
Meets: each Wednesday in B-Term, 5:20-8:00 pm (July 26-August 16)
Description: This course is intended to help students understand the capabilities that the United States military can bring to the world of international development and humanitarian crisis response. Development work in today’s world is very complex. Whether you work for an NGO, IGO, OGO, or a private company, you could potentially be in a situation where you could require military support or benefit from the resources the military can offer. With the U.S.-led wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, along with other conflicts in the Middle East and Africa, the United States military has found itself more involved in work outside its primary mission. Good or bad, this has become reality.
This course will focus on the following topics: U.S. military doctrine and ability to task organize for specific missions; Specialized units and logistics capability; Permissive versus non-permissive environments; and, Military limitations and challenges. In addition to these topics, this workshop will look at the different Combatant Commands (COCOMS) and explore some of the unique challenges and possible opportunities that exist.
PUBPOL 598 C: Fundraising Fundamentals (1 credit)
Instructor: Dawn Rains
Meets: each Wednesday in A-Term, 5:50-8:30 pm (June 19-July 19)
Description: Nonprofit organizations rely on charitable contributions from individuals, corporations, and foundations to fuel their important missions. This skills workshop provides an overview of the role of philanthropy in the community and within an organization, and the basic principles underpinning fund development. We will explore the elements of a strategic fundraising plan and the strategies, tools, and techniques used to move potential supporters from interest and information to involvement and investment. Learn how to create a compelling case for support, write effective donor-centered communications, solicit gifts, and measure fundraising effectiveness. Students are encouraged to select a nonprofit organization in advance of the first class to use as their focus during class exercises and assignments.

Introduction to Health Policy will provide you with two separate, but related, tools. The first is the ability to understand and explore the current state of local, state and federal health policies and their implications for business decision making. Health care is a significant portion of the compensation package of employees and businesses must be aware of the current laws, policies, and their consequences for labor and management.
