USC Price School of Public Policy

Public Administration

Why do presidents face so many seemingly avoidable bureaucratic conflicts? And why do these clashes usually intensify toward the end of presidential administrations, when a commander-in-chief’s administrative goals tend to be more explicit and better aligned with their appointed leadership’s prerogatives? In his new book Rethinking the Administrative Presidency, USC Price School of Public Policy Assistant Professor William G. Resh considers these complicated questions from an empirical perspective.

Public administrators shape our communities and safeguard our future. They run our cities, government agencies, and nonprofits. The Price School prepares students to be leaders who will solve today’s critical social problems.
