Rutgers SPAA faculty and students conduct research, lead projects, and provide resources to practitioners and academics in the fields of public service and administration, offering insights and best practices in areas such as public and nonprofit performance measurement and management; nonprofit management, budgeting and financial management; technology and information management; experimental and behavioral public administration; transparency; anti-corruption, and teaching public administration.
Teaching is an essential aspect of programs in public affairs and administration. Our students look to our faculties for substantive, enlivening courses. But effective pedagogy cannot be taken for granted. Although faculty members are both producers and consumers of pedagogical innovations, beyond the publication of textbooks those learning resources often enjoy only limited distribution. This compendium is an effort to bring together a broad array of teaching and learning resources in public affairs and administration.
