As our Center for Public & Nonprofit Leadership begins a new academic year, I am delighted to share our Annual Report, highlighting our team's accomplishments this past year and our plans for 2015-2016.
It was an honor to work last year with the nonprofit communities in Washington, D.C., Medellin, Colombia and Jacksonville, Florida, to strengthen their capacity to tackle the poverty and related conditions in their cities. The work is hard-and seemingly insurmountable - but the commitment and tenacity we witnessed was inspiring.
Community engagement and collective impact will continue to be the focus of the Center's activities in the coming year. We look forward to working with our students, colleagues and friends to provide innovative solutions to address the needs of our communities, in our own region and elsewhere.
