Ethics in Public Service: A Workshop for Municipal Officials

Villanova’s Master of Public Administration Program, the Ethics Program, the School of Law, and the Matthew J. Ryan Center for the Study of Free Institutions and the Public Good will sponsor a special workshop for elected officials on Saturday, April 5, 2008. The workshop will be facilitated by faculty from Ethics, Public Administration, and the Law School, and will feature Amy L. Kurland, Esquire, the Inspector General of the City of Philadelphia, as the luncheon keynote speaker.

Elected municipal officials in Pennsylvania are invited to this workshop, which focuses on how the common good can be fostered in an environment complicated by partisan and political pressures. Specifically, the workshop will introduce elected officials to models of thinking about, developing, and working with ethics. It will provide participants with practical guidance about ensuring compliance with ethical standards in working with professional managers and the civil service. Finally, it will suggest ways to build an ethical institutional culture and put in place organizations, practices, and structures that promote ethics in government. Learn more...
