IPAC Edmonton’s IPAC-U initiative offers learning opportunities through practical, hands-on workshops and seminars. Led by experts from across the public, private, not-for-profit, and academic sectors, these sessions focus on challenging issues facing the public service. By building a network of practitioners and academics, IPAC-U aims to create a stronger “pracademic” culture in the greater Edmonton region and bridge the traditional divide between the scholarly and public sector communities.
Following the traditional university model, IPAC-U’s weekly sessions are organized in ‘semesters’ that run from September to December and January to April. Events are free for IPAC members. Non-members are charged a nominal fee for registration.
