PUBH 420 - Managing in a Non-Profit Organization


3 Credits
This class examines the diverse and dynamic field of non-profit management with an emphasis on how entry-level workers might navigate in this unique organizational form. Students will review the historical context for non-profits including the rise of non-profit organizations, how non-profits differ from other sectors and collaboration across sectors. The course will also examine the concepts and frameworks for non-profit governance and leadership with an emphasis on mission-driven cultures, strategic planning and delivering on the mission, stakeholder cultivation and management, resource identification and management (including human resource management, fundraising and grants management), and nurturing people and relationships including boards of directors, staff and volunteers. In addition to examining the theories and concepts of non-profit management, students will also practice non-profit management in individual and group projects and assignments that reference their internship experiences.
