ORG LP912 - Leading Non Profits and NGOs

(Credits: 3)

Leading Nonprofits and Non-Government Organizations (NPs/NGOs) gives students the opportunity to apply leadership theories and practices to grassroots agencies often created to address social, economic and political disparities both nationally and internationally. Students will examine various concepts tied to leadership such as power and accountability, strategic planning, succession planning, and legal and ethical issues.  Students will examine the influence of external influences (stakeholders, global value migration and trends) in the development and operation of NPs/NGOs.  As part of the course, student will complete an in depth investigation and analysis of an NGO or NP of choice and will update their leadership development plans to include specifics of their potential role in and contributions to capacity building for the identified NGO or NP.
