COURSE DESCRIPTION:

U.S. federalism is the constitutional division of powers between federal and state governments. Intergovernmental relations explores interaction among federal, state, and more than 80,000 state-created county, municipal, and special district governments. Through the "hollowing out" of the state, public services are increasingly provided by private and nonprofit organizations through grants and contracts. This complex interactive network is characterized by cooperation and conflict in managing the delivery of public services such as education, public safety, and health care. Students will understand the unique roles of federal, state, and local governments, and how to manage the provision of public goods and services by private for-profit and nonprofit organizations.
