Abstract

This report was prepared by the Queen’s School of Policy Studies Policy Innovation Lab (QSPS PIL). The goal of the QSPS PIL was to examine and provide recommendations regarding the undesirable social behaviours at Homecoming in Kingston, Ontario, Canada, which have negatively impacted Queen's University, the Kingston community, law enforcement, and students. The policy innovation lab (PIL) format was adopted for a one-week Masters of Public Administration (MPA) course (April 25-29th, 2022). Policy labs are a relatively new phenomenon that attempts to engage diverse stakeholders to find solutions, approaches, and insights to complex policy problems. The 38 MPA students applied public policy and public management concepts as well as techniques used by policy lab practitioners to help inform the in-depth discussions with stakeholders impacted by the Queen’s Homecoming. The QSPS PIL lab members developed seven recommendations. In addition, the potential pedagogical benefits of university-based policy labs are highlighted.
