About the Hallway

The Hallway is an online library of high-quality, faculty-reviewed teaching cases and resources housed at the University of Washington’s Evans School of Public Policy & Governance. It provides educators who teach public administration, public policy, and related subjects with:

  • A constantly growing database of teaching cases
  • Curriculum materials and teaching notes
  • Videos of select cases taught by experienced teachers
  • Classroom instruction in case teaching and writing

The Hallway has recently undergone a complete overhaul to make it even more useful for educators. New features for members include:

  • Complete user-centric redesign
  • Assigned Cases dashboard for better management of cases
  • New platform for case-based instruction
  • Smarter search options and related suggestions
  • Everything stays on the new site, but PDFs are still available

Our materials are used widely throughout the United States, as well as other countries, in undergraduate, graduate, and government training programs. Many schools, foundations, and organizations have contributed to the Hallway over the years. We update content regularly, so check back often for new teaching materials!

Membership Eligibility

Membership with the Hallway is only available to faculty and instructors in public administration and related fields, as well as government agencies who use materials in their training programs. Membership is not eligible for students in these related fields due to the teaching purpose of the Hallway.


The Hallway and the Evans School of Public Policy and Governance often partner with universities, governments, and organizations to provide specialized training, research, and/or case distribution via the Hallway website. You can see some of our past and current case writing and distribution partners listed here.

If you would like to explore a partnership with us, please contact us at hallhelp@uw.edu.


Over the years, thousands of faculty members and practitioners have relied on the Hallway to meet their curricular needs. However, the nominal fee charged for access does not fully cover the costs of developing, maintaining, and administering the Hallway.

Many schools, foundations, and organizations have contributed to the Hallway's growth over the years. Join them by providing financial support for this invaluable resource. Contact us today at hallhelp@uw.edu.
