We would also like to ask our generous members to share any relevant syllabi that they’ve successfully used for coursework on NGOs, nonprofits, or related themes.  We believe that collaboration is key in improving our disciplinary understanding of these ever-shifting organizational forms, so please don’t be shy and email us your syllabi!  We would be happy to remove any information (name, affiliation, grading details, etc.) as you see fit.


As always, if you have any questions about our interest group, web presence, past/upcoming conferences or work at the AAA, please do not hesitate to contact us at [email protected].  We look forward to launching the new academic year as an interest group, and we thank our members for making such an impact on our vitality and success.
