In light of changes in the organizational structure and dynamics of municipal governments, and the
continual advancement of social media and other technology based communication tools, public
engagement systems and strategies have advanced dramatically in recent years. Students will review
professional and academic literature to identify practices in public engagement for local government
organizations. These cases and concepts will be summarized in a final document that also includes links
to examples of real life practice, as well as ideas for application of public engagement tools and
strategies to City of Bozeman operations and policies. The Neighborhoods Program will be the object of
study for students to gain understanding of engagement practices currently in use.
