Leading Non-Profit Organizations --- This is a course intended to give students a broad overview of the leadership challenges of the non-profit sector. The course content is designed for students who not only plan to lead non-profit organizations, but who may also serve as volunteers or on non-profit boards. The core framework for this course will focus on non-profit leaders as capacity builders. This includes the leadership capability to create a mission centered non-profit organization aligned with its strategies, skills, organizational culture and a supporting infrastructure. In addition, we explore the leader as external agent building capacity through advocacy, working with businesses and collaborating with other non-profit organizations.
