1. Zilliox, Skylar. Regulating relationships : memorandums of understanding and unconventional energy development in suburban Colorado.

Degree: MS(M.S.), Civil and Environmental Engineering, 2016, Colorado School of Mines

The rapid expansion of hydraulic fracturing has led to significant political upheaval, with multiple policy solutions proposed by different stakeholders. One strategy that is growing in prominence in Colorado is the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), which proposes a set of Best Management Practices (BMPs) to which a company must adhere in exchange for expedited permitting approval. Ideally, these agreements foster better company-community relations by protecting the community while saving the well operator time and money. The town of Erie, in 2012, adopted MOUs with two operators to address growing community concern about the safety and environmental impacts of hydraulic fracturing, and the community has since renegotiated a new agreement with one operator. The ongoing negotiation process has been significantly impacted by a high profile well drilled near residences that exceeded state noise regulations and raised safety concerns in the nearby neighborhood. My research examines the MOU negotiation process and its impacts on governance methods and citizen relations with industry. It draws on interviews with government officials and key stakeholders, as well as coding and analysis of public commentary in Town Hall meetings, to assess perceptions of the effectiveness of MOUs and the governance strategies used to construct them. This research provides an initial analysis of the impact of hydraulic fracturing on an exurban Colorado community and the effectiveness of MOUs as a policy strategy for reconciling the interests and concerns of residents, local governments, and corporations.

2. Cooper, Frederick. A Case Study in Collaborative Efforts at Spartanburg Community College.

Degree: PhD, Educational Leadership, 2012, Clemson University

The General Assembly of South Carolina radically changed the structure of secondary education with the enactment of the Education and Economic Development Act (EEDA) of 2005. A provision in the legislation requires post-secondary institutions to develop articulation agreements with secondary institutions in their service area(s). Traditionally, articulation agreements between secondary and post-secondary institutions have been few and far between. The question then becomes how articulation agreements are developed from the post-secondary perspective. Spartanburg Community College is one of the sixteen technical/community colleges in South Carolina. The development of articulation agreements is examined at Spartanburg Community College using the lens of path dependence, neo institutionalism, and resource dependency as a guide. History is used as a means of describing the process as a manifestation of the changing environment within Spartanburg County through time. Advisors/Committee Members: Satterfield, James W, Gonzales , Leslie, Brewer , Curtis, Warner , Cheryl.

3. Marlin-Tackie, Frances. Suburban unconventional energy development : an evaluation of key characteristics behind public trust and risk perceptions.

Degree: MS(M.S.), Civil and Environmental Engineering, 2019, Colorado School of Mines

The dueling expansions of both hydraulic fracturing and population in the Colorado Front Range have sparked intense political conflict as these two land uses encroach on one another. State preeminence over oil and gas (OG) development, combined with an uncertain policy context, has led many local governments to pursue Memorandums of Understanding (MOUs) as a way of gaining a seat at the table without risking political stalemates with the state. Theoretically, MOUs empower local governments to negotiate Best Management Practices directly with the operators in exchange for a stable regulatory landscape. This analysis builds on prior research evaluating a similar conflict in Erie, Colorado by tracking how the “interested public” – citizens who participated in public hearings on OG – changed their perceptions over time in two communities that experienced an OG conflict while negotiating an MOU. Our data includes observations of the citizen comment portion of local government meetings in Commerce City and Wadley Farms. These comment periods were transcribed and then coded in order to quantify: the number of times major topics of concern were discussed, the instances in which criticism and praise of other stakeholders were expressed, and the stakeholders’ overall stance regarding OG development. These case studies are then used to identify the key mechanisms influencing public perceptions of risk and trust in the industry, state government, and local government.
