The Third Sector Initiative is part of our Professional Master of Public Administration and regular MPA programmes. Each fall, Dr. Kathy Brock teaches the core course on Public Policy and the Third Sector in the regular programme. Dr. Rachel Laforest teaches a course in the winter term on citizen engagement. As part of our national policy seminars held in the Spring, two courses will be offered on the third sector by prominent practitioners and academics. In addition, students in either programme may write a research paper in the field of the third sector.
