  • Information


Public administration education programs prepare students in the provision of important public and nonprofit services, so it is essential that such programs help prepare administrators to advance social equity, one of the pillars of the discipline.

This exciting new book from social equity authorities Sean McCandless and Susan T.

Gooden demonstrates how public administration faculty can teach social equity across the curriculum, in practical terms. This edited collection features chapters from authors experienced in both public administration and in teaching social equity.

Each chapter discusses teaching social equity in a particular class (Introduction to Public Administration, Organizational Dynamics and Theory, Human Resources, Policy Process, Research Methods, Capstones, and more) through distinct pedagogical practices that advance student learning (including case studies, community engagement projects, and simulations).

The text captures an array of instructional approaches to social equity within public affairs education, particularly at the graduate level.

It includes approaches from both established and newer instructors, across a diversity of universities.

The book serves as an important resource to faculty who teach these courses, as well as the students who take them.

Most importantly, it is a resource to academics and practitioners alike who share a commitment to fairness in the implementation of public services.
