Nonprofits and Social Change

CSPL 240
Fall 2016
Section: 01  
Crosslisting: SOC 242
Certificates: Civic Engagement

This course explores the world of nonprofits and how they help (or don't help) the process of social change. As nonprofits increasingly address issues and concerns that governments have previously addressed, a critical analysis of how and why they carry out their work is central to the Allbritton Center's concern with public life. Each class session will include (1) background on a particular social issue (including global health, inner-city education, clean water, hunger, refugees, and national borders); (2) a case study of a nonprofit addressing that issue; (3) discussion with leaders of that nonprofit.
