The Gupta Governance Institute’s Center for Nonprofit Governance at Drexel’s LeBow College of Business, in collaboration with the National Center on Nonprofit Enterprise (NCNE), is pleased to announce the launch of a new online research seminar series on the theme of managing nonprofit organizations in a crisis. The series seeks to highlight frontiers of knowledge and new research important for the nonprofit field and provide a regular, national/international forum for academic researchers to explore these areas in depth.
