As the world around us continuously changes, Bush School students are offered pragmatic methods for engaging with their communities and serving our society on local, regional, national, and global fronts. Our alumni from the Master of Public Service and Administration (MPSA) program are working in different capacities throughout the nonprofit world and continually draw upon the skills honed within their education at the Bush School to support their estimable work, which is positively impacting the lives of countless individuals.
We strive to prepare students for impactful careers in public service. Kendall Rowden ‘17 is the Development Officer of Corporate Partnerships at Children’s Health, which is the largest pediatric healthcare system in North Texas. She chose to study at the Bush School because she believes that as human beings, it’s our mission and responsibility to take care of one another. A career in the nonprofit world allowed her to carry out this mission on a fulltime basis in her daily life. Rowden believes that “as a nonprofit professional, one of the most rewarding things for me is being able to help connect someone to a nonprofit with a mission that matches their passions and allows them the opportunity to serve their community in a meaningful way.”
The staff at the Center for Nonprofits and Philanthropy are exceptionally proud of the commitment our former students bring to their work, and it is exciting to see them making a difference in the nonprofit sector.
