Our new Study Away course, The Future of Work in the Philanthropic Sector, is an opportunity for you to learn about:
- How to build sustainable organizations
- How to develop innovative partnerships
- What competencies and qualities future leaders will need, and
- To experience firsthand how an innovative foundation brings about positive change
Co-instructors Marilyn Kuhn and Pamela Clark will connect you to The Patterson Foundation, located in Sarasota, Florida. You will also have the opportunity to collaborate with organizations in Sarasota to work on capacity building, an issue-based movement, or a giving challenge.
This course will be offered in the spring semester of 2020. Students will participate in four class meetings (Jan. 24, Feb. 7, Feb. 21, Mar. 6) to prepare for the work that will be done over spring break (March 14-21) in Sarasota and one additional class meeting (Apr. 3) after the trip. Pre- and post-class meetings will take place on the days listed from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
The course will be open by application to bachelor’s and master’s students and preference will be given to Lilly Family School of Philanthropy students. The course is limited to 10 students. You will be expected to pay a $200 program fee in addition to tuition and fees for the course. Undergraduate students will register for PHST P330 and graduate students will register for PHST P530.
