  • promoting contemporary and recognized best practices for managing public and nonprofit affairs;
  • employing data-driven decision making tools to solve problems and provide solutions across a host of policy arenas;
  • developing effective strategies for enfranchising participation and reaching consensus among diverse perspectives and constituents by incorporating community input into decision making; and,
  • understanding the changing legal and ethical environment within which public and nonprofit employees work.
