About Re:CAP

Re:CAP, produced by the Fels Institute of Government at the University of Pennsylvania, aims to present public leaders with information on promising, data-driven practices that can be applied immediately to their work. Forward-thinking perspectives and cutting-edge research will examine the context dictating the public landscape, provide in-depth analysis of universal problems both specific and broad, and propose practical considerations crucial to implementing fresh insight. The intricacies of the public sector demand constant improvement and thoughtful examination; Re:CAP will help you perform at your best and enable your organization to thrive. 

The Fels Institute of Government is well positioned to provide substantive and meaningful content that can be leveraged by public administrators around the world. The driving philosophy behind Fels is CAP - only through a thorough understanding of context, the ability to analyze, and the capacity to put the subsequent insight into practice can a public leader achieve their maximum impact. From educating students to supporting current public administrators, CAP is key to efficient and effective programs.

Re:CAP is fueled by the efforts of many, and contributors includes visionary practitioners at the peak of their careers, experienced and cutting-edge faculty from the University of Pennsylvania, and passionate Fels students exploring groundbreaking methods for public leadership. To have its own maximum impact, however, Re:CAP must not only promote ideas, but also provide a space for important conversations. Through Re:CAP, a community of collaborative, ambitious, and dedicated public leaders can discuss the pressing issues of the public sector.

We intend for this project to provide a crucial service, and we want your help. If you believe that sharing your experience and expertise can enhance other public leaders' opportunities for success, I encourage you to reach out and offer your contributions. I look forward to contributing to this effort often in the coming years and call to others who can provide their support to this cause to step forward.
