The second needs assessment step is a workshop with area public service
managers. Approximately 75 participants will attend. These participants are selected from
survey respondents who express an interest in attending and others invited by the project
team. Participants are selected in order to provide a cross-section of government types,
sizes, and locations and participants’ job functions and public service experience. There
are three major goals of this workshop. First is to discuss and clarify survey responses so
that we have the best possible understanding of expectations for students of the
governance project. Second is to discuss design and delivery of courses, workshops,
internships and other experiences. Third is to develop a long-term relationship between
CSUS and workshop attendees; this relationship will be solidified through creation of a
project steering committee, use of professionals as adjunct instructors and presenters,
creation of ongoing internship programs, and development of a mentoring program.
