I designed this course as an elective for students in the Masters of Public Policy and Masters of Public Administration programs. In this course, I teach students how to use a social equity framework for analyzing, implementing, and evaluating public policy. We then use this framework as a lens to examine topics in higher education policy, covering various issues related to (in)equity in higher education. 

This course focuses on the policy process, major policy domains, and ethics and decision making in public policy. Case studies serve as vehicles for improving writing and presentation skills. This course emphasizes professional writing in the context of policy and management memoranda. Students learn to write for and present to a professional audience, think critically about complex policy issues, and use evidence to form a policy argument.
