Expanded Course Description
This course provides a multidisciplinary overview of the nonprofit sector, a large segment of the economy and social world that parallels and complements the public and private sectors. Starting with the historical roots of the nonprofit sector in colonial America, we trace its development and presence in the United States, outline the legal constraints under which it operates, and explore the political reasons for those constraints.

The guiding question of this class is: What is the nonprofit sector and why does it exist? The basic goal of the course, then, is to help students have a general understanding of what the nonprofit sector is, why it exists, and the on-going challenges of the sector. To meet this goal, this course employs a multi-faceted, interdisciplinary approach to the topic material, using research and theories from a broad spectrum of social science fields. No one discipline lays claim to academic research on the nonprofit sector and philanthropy, and the best scholars in this nascent field are adept at crossing disciplinary boundaries.

Four primary methods of teaching/learning will be evident in this class: traditional lectures, small and large group discussions, a series of talks by a variety of nonprofit professionals, and small group projects where students will form their own nonprofit organization.
