Current Topics in Nonprofit Management (6 credits)

Effective nonprofit management requires students to be familiar with the often-complex issues created by a rapidly changing global environment and to understand the approaches being taken to address those challenges. This course provides the students with an opportunity to explore current and emerging issues in nonprofit management from both a theoretical and practical perspective. The specific issues addressed will vary from year to year but may include such areas as nonprofit law and regulation; civic engagement, volunteering and volunteer management; new institutional forms and the blurring boundaries of the nonprofit sector; collaboration, networking and acquisition; interorganizational relations and public private partnership; challenges and opportunities in a digital environment; and the policy environment.
