Class Description:

Although nonprofit organizations are increasingly adding young professionals to their boards of directors, there are limited opportunities for board leadership development. Our purpose is to directly address this challenge by spending time reading about governance, talking with local governance experts, and, especially, sharing among ourselves the challenges of serving on boards in order to improve board leadership skills.

More specifically, the practicum focuses on distinctive features of nonprofit board governance and uses research and concepts along with students' current board experiences to illuminate challenges and explore solutions in order to build board leadership competencies. The course will cover legal requirements of nonprofit boards, their basic roles and responsibilities, important issues of recruitment, composition and diversity, intra-board and board-staff dynamics, and life cycle changes. Other topics may be added, depending on student experiences and interests.

Grading:
Reflection papers 20% (2 - 1-page, single-spaced reflection on the readings and class discussion relevant to your board experiences

Final short paper 30% (2 page, single-spaced paper that provides a brief analysis of the strengths and challenges facing your board, based on the most important insights from the course, and a description of recommendations for how your board could be more effective)

Class Description:
Although nonprofit organizations are increasingly adding young professionals to their boards of directors, there are limited opportunities for board leadership development. Our purpose is to directly address this challenge by having Humphrey student spend time developing board leadership skills. The course is designed for Humphrey students who currently serve on a nonprofit board or board committee, work with a board, or are actively seeking to join a board. The one-credit practicum focuses on distinctive features of nonprofit board governance and uses research and concepts along with students' current board experiences to illuminate challenges and explore solutions in order to build board leadership competencies. The course will cover legal requirements of nonprofit boards, their basic roles and responsibilities, important issues of recruitment, composition and diversity, intra-board and board-staff dynamics, and life cycle changes. Other topics may be added, depending on student experiences and interests.
