Last month, the UNC School of Government MPA Class of 2011 presented their Capstone papers during their annual conference. I had the opportunity to attend this conference and was once again impressed with the professional research, investigation, and analysis provided by these students on a variety of topics pertinent to public administration and local government.
The School of Government has now published these papers online for review and utilization. Several papers focus on issues related to finance and budgeting, as well as other subjects of interest to our membership that include:
Collaboration Incentives: Local Government Experiences with ARRA — Catherine Durham
Managerial Effect: Comparing Forms of Local Government — Terry Waterfield
Employee Perceptions of Furlough Fairness: The UNC-Chapel Hill Case — Ingrid Rosiuta
Special thanks to Susan Lynch and the UNC School of Government staff for taking care of posting these papers online.
