Bridging the Curricular and Co-Curricular: The Rockefeller Center Model of Civic Engagement
Unformatted Document Text:  5. The Policy Research Shop Launched in 2004, the Policy Research Shop (PRS) offers a unique opportunity for undergraduate students in the Rockefeller Center. The goals of the Policy Research Shop are to provide students with real life experience in public policy research and to deliver high-quality, objective research on critical policy issues of interest to elected policymakers in New Hampshire and Vermont. The Research Shop builds on a long tradition at the Rockefeller Center of bridging the gap between public policy research and civic engagement. Students interested in participating in the Policy Research Shop must complete PBPL 45: Introduction to Public Policy Research during the fall term or PBPL 48: Policy Analysis and Local Governance during the winter term. Taught by Professor Ronald Shaiko, Associate Director of the Rockefeller Center, PBPL 45 prepares students with the fundamental methods for conducting public policy research. The course also provides students with the opportunity to meet practitioners and policymakers from the Vermont and New Hampshire legislatures. PBPL 48, taught by Professor Peter Burns, a research associate at the Rockefeller Center, prepares students to undertake research projects focused on local government policy issues identified by local government officials (e.g., town and city councils, county boards, school boards). Students who excel on one or both of the aforementioned policy research courses will be invited to work as interns in the Policy Research Shop during the winter and spring terms. Students may work in the PRS for academic credit (PBPL 91) or as paid interns. Students working in the PRS will apply their learning by completing research on policy issues of interest to policymakers in Vermont and New Hampshire or to local government officials. Recently completed research reports include: Enhancing Retirement Saving in New Hampshire, MTBE Presence in Groundwater, Scrap Tire Management: A Case Study of 15

5. The Policy Research Shop
Launched in 2004, the Policy Research Shop (PRS) offers a unique opportunity for
undergraduate students in the Rockefeller Center. The goals of the Policy Research Shop
are to provide students with real life experience in public policy research and to deliver
high-quality, objective research on critical policy issues of interest to elected policymakers
in New Hampshire and Vermont. The Research Shop builds on a long tradition at the
Rockefeller Center of bridging the gap between public policy research and civic
engagement. Students interested in participating in the Policy Research Shop must
complete PBPL 45: Introduction to Public Policy Research during the fall term or PBPL
48: Policy Analysis and Local Governance during the winter term. Taught by Professor
Ronald Shaiko, Associate Director of the Rockefeller Center, PBPL 45 prepares students
with the fundamental methods for conducting public policy research. The course also
provides students with the opportunity to meet practitioners and policymakers from the
Vermont and New Hampshire legislatures. PBPL 48, taught by Professor Peter Burns, a
research associate at the Rockefeller Center, prepares students to undertake research
projects focused on local government policy issues identified by local government officials
(e.g., town and city councils, county boards, school boards).
Students who excel on one or both of the aforementioned policy research courses
will be invited to work as interns in the Policy Research Shop during the winter and spring
terms. Students may work in the PRS for academic credit (PBPL 91) or as paid interns.
Students working in the PRS will apply their learning by completing research on policy
issues of interest to policymakers in Vermont and New Hampshire or to local government
officials.
