What happens when civic technology gets its own degree?

A panel of San Francisco technologists and public officials will discuss possibilities Feb. 3 at the California College of the Arts, which recently released its new Master of Business Administration in Civic Innovation. During the panel, the college hopes to draw input from the industry’s success to leverage tech for civic good.

The evening event, supported in part by Government Technology magazine, will see a keynote presentation by San Francisco’s District 2 Supervisor Mark Farrell and a discussion with a line-up of civic tech panelists. These include San Jose, Calif.’s former Chief Innovation Officer Jeremy Goldberg, Code for America’s Talent Director Lane Becker, Neighbor.ly’s Chief Strategy Officer Kiran Jain, and Better’s Vice President of Strategy Adam Dole.

The college’s two-year MBA in Civic Innovation takes part of its structure from the school’s accredited Design Strategy MBA, a program that launched six years ago to cultivate and institutionalize learning for both private and public innovation leaders. Other guiding posts for the MBA program were gathered from government innovation offices and civic technology companies from across the nation.

Additional details are posted below and those interested in attending can register for free.
