Budget cuts are necessary, but how can they best be communicated? How do we frame the problem, show the range of options considered, and build support for—or at least acceptance of—an unpleasant solution? What political and ethical considerations should guide the process? In this workshop, led by Paul D’Anieri, professor of public policy and political science and former provost at the University of California, Riverside, attendees will learn concrete techniques and get hands-on practice with the difficult job of leading a budget-cutting process.
