The Center for Nonprofits and Philanthropy carries forward the founding principles of the School and President Bush to prepare principled leaders for public service. Nonprofits and voluntary action are the foundation of our society and informed and capable leaders make a difference. The Center will support a vibrant nonprofit and philanthropic sector in Texas and beyond through high-quality research, professional outreach, and engaged learning.
We are ready for continued development and expansion of our work, which builds on the strength of the Bush School and the Nonprofit Management program. We anticipate enhanced learning opportunities for students and enriched engagement with the community. The Center’s research will focus on a variety of topics related to the scope, structure, and management of nonprofit and philanthropic organizations in Texas.
One goal is to make data and research accessible to both the academic and the nonprofit and philanthropic communities as well as publish research in academic journals on governance, strategic management, grantmaking, and philanthropy.
The Center also plans to partner with university programs and community entities to develop program initiatives, offer learning opportunities for underserved professionals in Texas through workshops, and expand training materials for nonprofit leaders both domestically and internationally. Bush School students will have opportunities to contribute to the research agenda as well as engage with partners on a range of nonprofit issues.
This is an exciting time for the Center as we refine our portfolio of programs and build relationships to sustain our work. If you are in the area, please send us a note and stop by to visit.
We welcome the opportunity to assist you in achieving your academic and professional aspirations.
Professor and Director of the Center for Nonprofits and Philanthropy
