The Division of Student Development strives to support the university’s mission by offering programs that foster co-curricular involvement and leadership development, and supporting students as they experience the personal transformations of a Jesuit education. In order to achieve our goals, some staff resources have been reallocated. As a result, there will no longer be a stand-alone unit that exists for the sole purpose of coordinating student leadership development programs. In the 2018-2019 academic year, the Emerging Leaders Program will be facilitated by Student Activities & Greek Affairs, and The People’s Institute will be housed within the department of Student Diversity & Multicultural Affairs. The Leadership for Social Change Learning Community will continue to be coordinated by Residence Life. Students are encouraged to connect with these 3 programs, as well as with the many additional student leadership development experiences that exist in other areas on campus.
MGMT 331 (Managing Nonprofit Organizations) will prepare students with the knowledge, skills, and values to be effective leaders of social sector institutions. Students will examine how non-profits develop their missions, strategic plans, and program models, as well as how they fund their efforts and continuously improve their performance. Students will apply their knowledge through case study explorations of different Chicagoland non-profits and philanthropies. The course will be taught by Seth Green, the Founding Director of Loyola’s Baumhart Center and a former nonprofit CEO. MGMT 331 is scheduled on Wednesdays from 4:15 to 6:45 p.m. this Fall (in Corboy 105). LEARN MORE
