Using the Atlas

LightBulb1Ways to use the topic and concept databases

As noted in About, we hope the Atlas will be useful to those who wish to teach, or assess, or learn curricular content in MPP and MPA programs.

Potential applications include:

Prospective students and interested citizens

Students and graduates

Public officeholders



Academic administrators

Navigation and Search

The structure of the Atlas is described in About. The search window on the left navigation bar provides returns to search items that appear anywhere on a page. Standard search conventions apply:

  • terms separated by spaces results in an “All of these words (in any order, anywhere on the page)” search
  • terms enclosed in quotation marks results in a “This exact phrase” (word string) search.
