Bill ID: 21-22-29
PCC ID: 21058
Name: PCC Proposal to Rename the Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Public Management to Public Leadership and Management
Proposed: 11/23/2021
Sponsor: PCC Committee
Proposal: The Maryland School of Public Policy recently reactivated the Post-Baccalaureate Certificate program in Public Management after several years of being inactive. The School would now like to change the program title to Public Leadership and Management. This new title reflects the practical realities of modern governance. Governing in the public interest continues to be accomplished through traditional hierarchic bureaucracies, but must also be pursued through cross-sector collaboration in network organizations and within a diverse and demographically shifting environment. The School recognizes a growing demand for both enhanced management and leadership skills to address changing governance demands. The program’s curriculum reflects these instructional imperatives, and the School believes that the program title should also reflect the importance of leadership and its prevalence in the curriculum.
