Collaborative Policy Services Transferred to CCE
The College of Continuing Education (CCE) at Sacramento State will expand its services for the public, private and nonprofit sectors with the addition of the university’s Center for Collaborative Policy (CCP). The new Collaborative Policy Services and Programming (CPSP) will combine the resources of CCE with CCP’s work in conflict resolution, public engagement, collaborative problem solving, strategic planning, organizational development, research and training services.
In addition to being a self-support college, CCE is a leading provider of contract and customized training as well as conference and event planning services. The reorganization will allow CPSP to leverage the college’s expertise, vast networks and organizational infrastructure and remain competitive in the market. Clients have included local, state, and federal governmental agencies, tribal governments, non-governmental organizations and private industry.
CPSP got its start in 1992 as the California Center for Public Dispute Resolution before it transitioned to collaborative policy services. Its staff has worked on some of the state’s most pressing, visible and complicated issues including water, transportation, public health and homeland security. The client base has grown to include local, state and federal governmental agencies, tribal governments, non-governmental organizations and private industry.
Under the plan, CPSP will retain a presence downtown when the university opens its new Downtown Center located at 304 S Street.
