Application: Policy Change

The need for policy changes can arise for a variety of reasons. Some of those reasons might include social injustice, inequality, increased health concerns, and research discoveries in a multitude of environmental, social, health, and technological areas. Changing policies is an often-tough political battle because so many people can be affected by policy change.

For this Application Assignment, review the virtual community and think about your role as the head of a public agency in it. Think about which public policy area needs to be addressed or which public policy you feel is most important to change, and then propose a policy change. Keep in mind that any policy change you create will affect many people. How do you plan to address those who may not be supportive of the policy?
