A central purpose and responsibility of the Bush School is to prepare talented students to be capable and effective managers and leaders. Bush School graduates work in nonprofits addressing some of the state’s and the world’s most pressing problems. These organizations need capable and dedicated individuals who can plan programs that achieve outcomes, raise funds to sustain operations, monitor finances for ethical accountability, and support transparent governance.
The CNP will significantly enhance student learning through opportunities for practical experience and engagement with nonprofit leaders. The center will also improve the experience of Bush School students in the area of nonprofit studies and attract more high-quality students to our nonprofit studies programs. We aspire to prepare students to step into responsible positions upon graduation and give them the perspectives they need to provide leadership, and address important public problems.
