Each class is taught by highly regarded public officials for working practitioners.

As a Public Works Director, you have to be well versed in many areas of the industry. Often times, what we find is that we become so consumed by our day-to-day responsibilities that we tend to become very myopic with regards to the rest of the world's problems. The Public Work Institute allowed me the opportunity to take a step outside of my normal realm and view things from someone else's perspective. I was able to discuss issues that were important to me and have feedback from other classmates and instructors that was valuable in solving some critical issues. The class was very informative and included many aspects of the business that we tend to overlook. The instructors have a wide range of experience that is very beneficial for preparing the up and coming managers for success, not just at a manager level, but from a leadership perspective as well. I am proud to have been a part of the first graduating class and I most certainly plan to urge my employees to attend.
