Nonprofit and university strategic partnerships to strengthen the sector
This article presents a pilot program in which undergraduate students, faculty, and nonprofits conducted a joint research study to address management challenges of the non-profit partners. The program centered on an undergraduate course through which students implemented a research study in partnership with local nonprofit organizations, analyzed the results, and presented their findings at a professional development conference. This article discusses the formation of the course learning objectives, course implementation, and outcomes. Suggestions are made for practitioners and faculty who wish to develop a similar model.
