The NEPWI is a professional training course developed by public works professionals. It is administered by the staff of the Norwich University College of Graduate & Continuing Studies, Master of Public Administration program. While the Institute focuses on management and leadership best practices for public works, students from other fields may enroll. Students are required to read and prepare memoranda, engage in discussions with others in the block of instruction. In the final block of instruction, students complete a project focused on strategic planning for a public works organization. Students work closely with institute instructors, all of whom have graduate degrees in public administration or civil engineering, and possess years of leadership experience.
The NEPWI introduces students to the functional areas of public works and the scope of operations for each area. Particular emphasis is placed on basic management and leadership practices. Students study basic research, strategic planning, transformational leadership, organizational ethics and values, critical analysis, budgeting, information systems, communications, contract processes, public works operations and structure. Successful completion of the course is an important part of the American Public Works Association (APWA) Level 1 Public Works Supervisor and Level 2 Public Works Management credentialing process in the Donald C. Stone (DCS) Center for Excellence.
