The Graduate Certificate in Collaborative Governance is designed for those who work in government, non-profit organizations or the corporate sector where cooperation with other institutions, stakeholders and the public at large is important. The certificate program prepares students to effectively participate in and manage collaboration across institutional and sectoral boundaries in an increasingly networked world. This certificate program is an appropriate addition to any Master's or Doctoral degree program on campus; and is also a concentration in the MPA program in the department.
The School of Government and Public Policy was formed in 2009 by combining two highly ranked programs – Political Science and Public Administration and Policy - and bringing them under a single roof. Located in the College of Social & Behavioral Sciences, SGPP is one of the largest schools at the University of Arizona and is uniquely situated to serve as a new model for public affairs education by promoting high-caliber research, teaching, community outreach, and civic leadership.
By offering leading programs in political science, international relations, public policy, and public management, SGPP prepares students for leadership positions in the public and nonprofit sectors.
