About Stephen G. Harding—


Instructor, Master of Public Policy & Administration Program, Northwestern University

Instructor, Master of Public Administration Program, The University of La Verne

Welcome to My Page!

This is my “Encore.” After a combined 40+ years in the public, private, and academic sectors, my interests are to assist the next generation of public servants in balancing their own professional aspirations with the greater interests of the public and the more defined goals of their chosen organizations.  As a former city manager, executive director of both a redevelopment agency and housing authority, president of an economic development corporation, municipal consultant, or as vice president of a multi-million dollar real estate development company, I have served nearly 60 widely diverse client organizations. I’ve facilitated the education of more than 1,000 students in 50 graduate and undergraduate sections in public administration, public policy and real estate development.

With all the ups and downs that comes with a long career I hope to continue to be a source of information and hopefully inspiration. This page is one of my ways of giving back to the concept of civics, public service, and common professional courtesy.  It is my attempt to post information that may be of use and interest and not usually found in the daily stream of information provided by our respective professional associations.  At times, some of the postings will be my own.  At other times, the information will come from a myriad of sources and authors.  Hopefully you will find it of interest.

Stay Well!!!
