Features of my courses

The goal of my teaching is to help students become visionary leaders or social entrepreneurs who can work out sustainable and scalable solutions to persistent social problems. To achieve this goal, I provide students with opportunities for both practice-based learning and the development of critical thinking skills. With practice-based learning, students combine theory and work experience through hands-on group projects in collaboration with local nonprofits, step-by-step exercises, and case studies, so that they can assess and improve their ability to manage organizations. In addition, by practicing critical thinking skills students explore what social, political, and economic roles nonprofits play, so that students can have a broader view of the role of philanthropy in civil society from various vantage points.

Key words for research

Nonprofit representation and accountability, Nonprofit advocacy, Nonprofit coproduction of public service delivery

What I like about Discovery

I enjoy developing the Discovery Program in collaboration with students. Because the Discovery Program is a brand-new program, student voices matter. Reflecting student voices, we have been developing and revising its curriculum and student services. I hope that motivated students will join the Discovery Program and that they will not only learn a lot from but also contribute to the Discovery Program.
