NPA 57400 Nonprofit Governance and Law

This course is designed to provide an understanding of the governing and regulatory environment associated with nonprofit organizations. Issues will be examined for students who may serve on a nonprofit board of directors, be employed by or work for one of them as a volunteer, or start their own nonprofit organization. The intent is to help students appreciate the complex nature of nonprofit organizations in addition to the legal roles and responsibilities of board members, staff and volunteers. This course will also examine the theory behind governance and law within the nonprofit business sector according to law and custom, ethical concepts, public attitudes, and contemporary legislative and regulatory issues that drive nonprofit organizational culture and executive decision-making. Lab fee may be required.
