Strategic Communications for Nonprofit and Public Managers

PADM-GP.4137, 1.5 points.

Semester: Fall


Generating public support through effective communications is as essential to the success of nonprofit and public organizations as it is to for-profit organizations. And since many nonprofits have limited staff and financial resources available for communications activities, it is even more important that these resources be deployed as strategically as possible. Concepts and skills developed in this course will help students approach communications in a way that builds commitment to their organization’s mission, strategic initiatives and fundraising activities. Students will gain familiarity with a variety of communications techniques and vehicles, and complete a basic communications plan for an organization they are familiar with.
