This full-semester interdisciplinary Clinic brings together upper-level graduate students in law, business, education and policy from Harvard, Columbia, Dartmouth, Michigan, NYU and Stanford to immerse themselves in (i) emerging strategies for K-12 and allied institutional reform; (ii) structured, team-based problem-solving skills that effective organizations use to address the most difficult challenges in public education and many other domains; and (iii) high-priority multi-dimensional consulting projects on behalf of public- and social-sector organizations serving the educational and related needs of children.
Participants in this Clinic engage in:
1. A comprehensive seminar in the design, governance, regulation, democratic accountability and transformation of K-12 school systems and allied public- and social-sector organizations.
2. Skills training in a constellation of twenty-first century problem-solving competencies, including working in diverse teams to address multi-dimensional problems; quantitative and qualitative analysis and measurement; organizational macro- and micro-design; project management; policy research and analysis; and presentation of professional advice to public- and social-sector clients.
3. A high-priority, professionally guided consulting project on which an interdisciplinary team of professional students provides research, design, strategic planning, and/or counseling assistance on matters that interweave legal, regulatory, management, policy, and/or technological problems crucial to the mission of the client organization—typically, a state department of education, school district, charter school organization, social services agency or other non-profit serving children.
