Graduate School of Government
The University of Sydney's Graduate School of Government (GSG) aims to promote excellence and innovation in public administration.
Established in 2003 the GSG seeks to involve local, state and federal government as well as the community sector in its courses and programs. The importance of these sectors for our quality of life means that their administrators need to be exposed to and educated in best practice. To this end our courses and programs contain innovative modules that present real world issues and events as case studies, supported by the active involvement of the participants as well as leading academics.
The GSG has initiated a highly successful mentor program involving experienced practitioners from the ranks of the senior public service, the judiciary and the private sector. The GSG aims to become central to the daily life of government in NSW and to reach out nationally and internationally for partnerships and ideas. Just as the public sector itself must cross the traditional boundaries to be effective, so too must the GSG.
As Director I look forward to ensuring that the GSG plays a significant role in the life of the University and its supporting community.
