DDPA 8851 - Board Governance and Volunteer Management


(5 cr.) The success of nonprofit organizations (NPOs) is largely dependent on the effective management of program volunteers and board members—individuals who often serve as the lifeblood of NPOs. Students in this course explore the volunteer management process, including volunteer recruitment, orientation, training, supervision, and evaluation. They focus on methods that organizations use to create and maintain an effective board of directors to ensure that the board governs and guides the organization toward its mission. Students design a board development or volunteer management plan based on processes presented in the course and fundamental concepts acquired earlier in the program.
