Course Description

This course offers students opportunities to identify and explore current issues relevant to the nonprofit sector. It presents students with a chance to examine critical issues like sector name and size, the implications of socio-economic and demographic change, changing trust and perception, and blurring boundaries and changing relationships with the public and private sectors. Students will conduct research in areas of their interest, apply theory to practice and contribute to discussions that explore the critical issues.


This course is fully online and asynchronous, meaning you typically will not have to be online at specific times. You will engage in course-related activities through online tools such as announcements, discussions, and email. Your course learning will be based on weekly module content and activities that you can go through independently. Note: there are still deadlines for assignment submissions, and you may be expected to participate in discussion board interactions with your peers on a regular basis.

Your instructor may also include occasional scheduled sessions for Q&As and other discussion activities, using web conferencing tools such as Zoom and Google Meet. More details will be included in your course outline available on the first day of class.
