More Information
This peer-reviewed edited volume provides strategies and practices for teaching nonprofit management theories and concepts in the context of the undergraduate, graduate, and online classroom environments.

Each chapter discusses and summarizes pertinent theories and concepts with concrete examples of nonprofit management education courses. Concept discussions then follow up with exercises or simulations and various resources for instructors to apply in either physical or virtual classrooms. The majority of the chapters are connected to one or more core nonprofit curriculum areas as identified by the Nonprofit Academic Centers Council (NACC) curriculum guidelines.

Instructors, faculty, and program directors of nonprofit management and philanthropy courses at undergraduate and graduate levels can use Teaching Nonprofit Management as a guide for teaching and for creating course syllabi. The book can also serve as a supplemental textbook, as it covers the core curricular areas identified by the NACC.
Critical Acclaim
‘I’m thrilled to see a book on teaching nonprofit management within the framework of the NACC curricular guidelines. As a participant in the development of the graduate-level guidelines several years ago, it is a great feeling to discover how the guidelines have influenced the field to the point of crafting a book on this framework. I especially appreciate the discussion questions, suggestions for assignments and recommendations for textbooks that complete the general discussion of the topics. I know, as time goes on, the book can be one that is updated often with information from a diverse group of faculty sharing their expertise.’
– Wesley E. Lindahl, North Park University, US

‘A doctoral degree in and of itself does little to prepare one for the role of nonprofit educator. This book does. It grounds the course topics in nonprofit life, reviews key theoretical approaches, reviews important research, and discusses activities and projects for both face-to-face classes and online instruction that can be readily implemented. It helps foster quality courses and nonprofit academic programs. This is a book that every nonprofit educator will want on their shelf to validate their course content, trigger reflection on class projects and activities, and to guide them in developing critical thinking as an integral part of their course.’
– Norman A. Dolch, University of North Texas, US
