Message to Authors: Transition to Publicases

Publicases Logo

Dear Hallway Case Authors,

The Hallway (formerly the Electronic Hallway) has been a vital resource for Public Affairs case teaching since the early 1990s, thanks in large part to the contributions from people like you, as authors of case studies.  We are excited to report that there will be a new way for these materials to be used by public affairs educators around the world. 

Starting June 28, 2021, the Hallway will begin transitioning content and functionality to a new home, Publicases, hosted by the Network of Schools of Public Policy, Affairs, and Administration (NASPAA).  This effort – part of NASPAA’s Institute for Innovative Teaching and Learning for Public Service – will be a centralized hub for public affairs learning materials.  We are proud that Evans School’s Hallway will be a founding contributor to this rich repository.  NASPAA is uniquely positioned to expand the development and use of case studies, simulations, and other experiential learning materials in public affairs education. 

If you do not wish to have your case(s) included in the move to Publicases, we request you notify us at ( by June 4th, 2021.  If we do not hear from you by that date, then we will consider that your consent for it to be approved to be moved to the new platform.  You do retain the right to have the case taken down at any time and, as with the Hallway the copyright of cases, on Publicases copyright is retained by the case authors.

If you have any questions about the new platform, you can contact NASPAA’s Director of Innovative Teaching and Learning, Stacy Drudy, at

Again, we are excited to be partnering on what is an important shift in the development of the field of public affairs education.
