University of Victoria Centre for Public Sector Studies

The Centre for Public Sector Studies is located within the School of Public Administration at the University of Victoria. Launched in 1978, the Centre was the University of Victoria’s first interdisciplinary applied research and management development centre. The Centre also plays a key role in the advancement of research and professional development sections of the School’s mission. The central premise underlying the School’s mission includes the aspiration to be a leading Canadian community, comprised of students, faculty, practitioners, alumni, and staff that emphasize innovative management of public policy and services through teaching, research and professional development.

The Centre’s research and professional development activities may be grouped into four distinct areas: Public Sector Development, Voluntary Sector Initiatives, the Local Government Institute, and the Performance Management Forum.

A significant component of the Centre’s research focuses on improving the ability of public sector organizations to meet their objectives with increased efficiency. To this end, the Centre regularly designs and hosts symposia and conferences concerning public sector management issues deemed relevant to governments and specific communities.

The Centre regularly enters into collaboration with like-minded organizations and bodies, particularly in regards to professional development offerings. Funding for the Centre comes from both public and private sector organizations.
