Implementing Public Policy Education: The Role of the School or College
What is the role of the school or college within the larger university setting in implementing policy studies in applied developmental science? The answer to this question largely depends on whether academic critical mass lies within or across college boundaries, and if within, determining whether it cuts across departmental lines. Critical mass refers to the depth of expertise in public policy analysis and program management among the disciplines and fields of developmental science.
