INST 290 Collaboration
Cross-listed with INBM 300-01.Permission of Instructor RequiredPart of the Climate Change and Human Security Mosaic. Over the past few decades, collaboration among organizations has become an increasingly relevant way to achieve strategic objectives that are beyond the reach of any single entity, and by doing so, to create value. Organizations engaged in collaboration have included for-profit and not-for-profit companies, civil society, governments, militaries, and intergovernmental organizations. In this course, we will draw upon literature from the fields of systems analysis and organizational theory as we explore models of collaborative structures and processes. We will also examine a range of collaborations that have been put in place to create some combination of social, public, economic, sustainable, and security value. Among others, the case studies we will examine will include the Greater Carlisle Project at the local level; the Robert Woods Johnson funded Aligning Forces for Quality initiative at the national level; and the US National Guard State Partnership Program at the international level.

INST 401 Global, Sustain & Security
In the 2010 National Security Strategy of the United States, President Obama articulates the need for whole of society approaches to tackling tough transnational issues. Furthermore, some experts believe that in the decades ahead, global governance will be a characterized by complexity and ambiguity, with governance structures reflecting the influence of states, NGOs, IGOs, for-profit companies, and other agents. In this seminar, we will investigate collaborative approaches to addressing national and transnational security related matters, especially those that are rooted in the economic, environmental, and social dimensions of sustainable development.
