NPM 7320 Nonprofit Governance

Nonprofit Governance addresses all aspects of governance of nonprofit organizations.  Nonprofits operate under a governance structure that has both similarities to for profit organizations, as well as nuances that make nonprofits unique.  This course will provide the student with a grounded understanding of nonprofit governance starting with a broad organizational strategic perspective as well as operational tactical perspectives.  Nonprofit Governance examines these issues from an operational perspective, giving students important insights into how nonprofit boards should govern the organization and what role staff must play in that effective governance.  Specific topics in this course include board management, organization articles of incorporation and bylaws, shared leadership models and strategic planning.
