Upcoming Events

What does the injunction, "Serve the public interest," really mean for public managers, and why is it important?

Dr. Carol Lewis, professor of political science at the University of Connecticut, will discuss different perspectives of public interest and offer a multi-faceted formulation of the public manager�s duty�a process that involves the current concerns of democracy and mutuality and the future concerns of sustainability and legacy.

In her systematic anaylsis of what defines the public interest, Dr. Lewis will highlight a case study of the reaction to the looting of Iraq�s National Museum of Antiquities in 2003 to illustrate the worldwide recognition of the legacy obligation to future generations.
