The Intersection of Politics and Public Service
Public service is often studied or practiced in ways that are disconnected from politics. This course reunites these two realms in ways that persuasively demonstrate the deep interconnection of non-governmental service work and practical politics. Taught by a veteran of White House, foundation, nonprofit, and private sector organizations, this class will explore the complex nature of public service in even the most charged political contexts. The course will use case studies, historical examples, and fascinating guest speakers.
