Political science faculty receives NSF grant
Angela Park, an assistant professor of political science, is part of a team that received a National Science Foundation Science of Organizations grant. The project is "Assessing the Impact of Lead Agency Cross-Functional Authority on City Sustainability Outcomes."
In this project, Park and her collaborators examine how interdepartmental collaboration within local governments impacts the implementation of sustainability policies. The grant-funded research will produce new data that scholars can use for analyzing this important policy area. This is an important contribution to the scholarly literature and has the potential to directly impact government efforts to effectively implement sustainability policies.
