Description

This course examines contemporary higher education public policy issues and provides a general introduction to the policy-making process in the United States. This process will be examined from multiple perspectives, including those from within the university as well as those from without. At all levels, key participants will be identified and their behavior analyzed to understand the importance of structural incentives embedded in the process. To develop the skills necessary to do this sort of high-level policy analysis, students will learn how to research and write policy briefs and analyses based on real, contemporary problems in higher education.
