Government Information Strategy & Management (GISM) Concentration
CTG is a strong academic research and teaching partner of the University at Albany's Rockefeller College of Public Affairs and Policy, ranked by U.S. News & World Reports as one of the nation's top public affairs schools. Because several of the programs at Rockefeller College closely align with the work that CTG has been doing for more than 22 years, several CTG staff members contribute to the educational environment at Rockefeller College.

The main courses in the GISM concentration, developed by CTG, allow students to understand the real-world issues in government and learn to use information technology as an essential tool for problem solving and public management. Drawing from public administration and other fields, students learn how policies, organizational factors, information content, and information technologies influence decisions and performance in government settings. The GISM concentration is now available in the Ph.D. in Public Administration and Policy program and Certificate programs in addition to the Master of Public Administration.

CTG's Director Theresa Pardo and Senior Fellow Sharon Dawes, also Professor and Professor Emerita respectively, collaborated with Distinguished Professor David Anderson to develop the program. Together with CTG's Research Director J. Ramon Gil-Garcia, Associate Research Director Mila Gasco, both Associate Professors, and Program Director Donna Canestraro, the concentration's effectiveness and notoriety continues to grow and is currently ranked 3rd in the nation for Technology Management in the Public Sector by U.S. News & World Report.

In addition to learning from CTG staff and fellows in a classroom setting, select students from Rockefeller College also enjoy the opportunity to work as graduate assistants and collaborate on academic publications and research projects under CTG leadership.
