PUB ADM 730. Nonprofit Boards and Governance. 3 Credits.
This course is for learners who aspire to serve on or facilitate a nonprofit board of directors. In this course, you will learn the role of the board in strategic management, oversight, and securing resources, and the common governance issues boards face. You will consider what a 'high performing' board looks like, how to recruit, orient, and develop new board members, and build a board meeting agenda. We will use multiple learning methods such as case studies, guest speakers, student presentations, writing assignments and live discussions to better understand the governance of a nonprofit organization. Students will work on individualized projects to advance their knowledge of boards of directors.
