Since its founding, the Center has been engaged in seminal research that considers a broad range of policy and leadership issues relevant to nonprofit practitioners. Through a series of collaborative research initiatives with a range of organizations, the Center’s Waldemar A. Nielsen Chair in Philanthropy, faculty, visiting practitioners, and students continue to develop a base of knowledge on effective policies and practices leading to vibrant and healthy organizations and communities.

Leading in Times of Hyper Change
