The course title is Power and Practice. Limited seating is open to non-MPPGA students. Please contact the course instructor Andrea Reimer at citizena@mail.ubc.ca for approval.

Over the course, students will develop the knowledge and skills they need for a greater understanding of their own power and how to navigate the corridors of power they will walk as they implement their vision in the real world.

Specific areas students will explore include:

cultivating a purposeful and focused commitment to creating a more just world

gaining insight into successful approaches to engaging public officials and others who can assist them as they work to implement their vision

an understanding of the practice of power and how it plays out in their daily interactions as a policy-maker or practitioner in their chosen field of practice.
