View the Call for Proposals here. Papers on advances in nonprofit pedagogy, research, and service are encouraged. A theme we are considering is “Nonprofit and Philanthropy Parables and Cases: What We Learn from the Stories We Tell”:
A shared obstacle within the nonprofit and philanthropy academic community is the challenge of producing research based on purely quantitative measures. It is often noted that qualitative aspects must also be considered in order to fully appreciate the value and impact of the nonprofit and philanthropy sector in civil society. Thus, the conference aspires to explore storytelling and case study through the lens of a nonprofit- and philanthropy-first perspective. Themes discussed may include the necessity and usage of case studies in theoretical and applied nonprofit research, best practices and models of scholarly case study, the role of case study in building the field, and the value of case study and experiential learning in nonprofit- and philanthropy-first pedagogy.
Additional information is forthcoming and registration will open soon. Discounted registration rates will be made available to NACC members and to graduate students of NACC member universities.
**We are seeking sponsors for the 2017 NACC Conference. Specific sponsorship opportunities will be provided soon. Interested individuals should contact Erin Vokes at firstname.lastname@example.org.**
Thanks and we look forward to seeing you this summer!
