PUB 450 Nonprofit & Voluntary Sectors

Provides broad overview of the sector, its origin, size, composition, and role in American Society and elsewhere.  This course also reviews theories of the sector and its conceptual underpinnings (i.e., its philosophical, political, economic, and social basis in American society) in some depth along with historical and religious foundations.  We will also look at such issues as why people organize, give financial support and donate time.
