NPFT 1010 - Introduction to Nonprofit Management and Leadership


Goals: To provide an introduction to the history and development of the nonprofit sector in the United States, with particular focus on the impact and approaches of nonprofits. While there are some core similarities among what are called nonprofit organizations, the range, purpose, and intention of nonprofits is extremely diverse. We will look at this array of organizations, then dive into some key areas in running a successful nonprofit.

Content: The course will introduce students to some of the core skills and ingredients of successful nonprofit organizations—governance, strategic planning, fundraising, financial management and advocacy. Guest speakers, who are leaders in the nonprofit sector, will share their career paths and glimpses into their nonprofit organizations.
