Congratulations to the 32 students from the Johnson Shoyama Graduate School of Public Policy who participated in the 2019 Internal Case Competition, which took place over the weekend in Regina.
Teams analyzed a case entitled “Universities in Saskatchewan. What is the best model?” which posed the question of whether the existing structure of two separate universities is the most effective in meeting the needs of students and the desired outcomes for the province. Seven teams competed in front of a panel of judges including:
- Doug Moen, JSGS Executive Director
- Cammy Colpitts, JSGS Alumni, and Assistant Deputy Minister, Trade and Export Development, Government of Saskatchewan
- Aaron Wirth, JSGS Alumni and Director, Ministry of Immigration and Career Training, Government of Saskatchewan
Having made the most compelling argument, Hisham Ekemekki, Merdad Safeaie, Martin Glazebrook and Zi Ling, placed first among their colleagues.
The school will be sending a team—made up of students who competed this weekend—to CAPPA’s National Annual Public Administration Case Competition in February 2020.
