CFP: Advancing the Field(s) of Nonprofit Management: New Structures, New Solutions


Junior faculty members with a promising research agenda in nonprofit management are invited to attend a conference exploring how nonprofit organizations are facing new challenges and taking on new structures in the wake of the Great Recession.
