IDCE 30296 - Nonprofit Management I


This class will be taught from the perspective of community spirited action associated with civil society. Missions of examined organizations will include social services; economic justice; human rights and advocacy; and housing endeavors covering both programs and projects. Topics will include a coursework related to mission selection and definition; gender-related trends; administrative and governance issues; budgeting; personnel management; public relations; and leadership approaches. These are generally generic topics relevant to both nonprofits and NGOs. The course will prove valuable for students intending to work for—or start-up—a U.S. nonprofit (NP) or an international nongovernmental organization (NGO). The course will compare issues associated with domestic NP and international NGOs. Generally, this skills course will inform the students how to start and/or operate a NP along with the basic core elements of running–or working within a NP or NGO. Also, this course would be useful to those interested in governmental services at the local or regional levels, including potential careers in housing, economic development, equity advocacy, environmental planning or other enterprising nonprofit organization.  This course is a prerequisite for IDCE 30298.
