COMM 624: Nonprofit and Association Communication

In recent years, the rapidly growing sector of nonprofit organizations has received more and more attention from academics. This trillion-dollar sector includes institutions related to education, research, healthcare, art, culture, religion, communications, social welfare and services, advocacy, legal services, international assistance, and foundations, as well as professional and trade organizations.

This course is designed to provide participants with an overview of issues and topics in nonprofit organizational communication. We will spend the first session addressing the historical foundations and implicit ideology of the nonprofit sector in the U.S., then turn to essential communication tasks—marketing, working with volunteers, fundraising, grant writing, and education and community outreach.
