Are you interested in city management and local government research? Would you like to form a student chapter of the International City County Management Association here at Cornell?
Many challenges face cities today – demographic change, need for infrastructure renewal, fiscal stress and constant pressure for public sector reform. Professor Mildred Warner studies economic development strategy, infrastructure provision, privatization and alternative service delivery and the role of cities in promoting planning that addresses the need of residents across the life cycle – from children to the elderly. She works closely with the International City County Management Association in conducting this research. In the next year she will be launching a project looking at shared service delivery among local governments in New York State. She is also working with ICMA on a new study of alternative service delivery and multigenerational planning among cities across the country. She is willing to serve as faculty advisor to an ICMA student chapter at Cornell if you would like to create one. If you are interested in local government, want to be part of the ICMA student chapter, or want to engage in local government research, come join for this conversation.
