Nonprofit Sector Analysis and Evolution: The LGBT Case
This course is a unique look at an assortment of evaluation and measurement methods - both "tried and true" and "innovative" - for non-profit organizations and the foundations that fund them. Rather than look at the non-profit universe writ large, we will examine evaluation methods, tools and consequences through the lens of one non-profit sector, the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) arena. We will utilize case studies, published articles and papers, and in-class conversations with those who are the subject of these evaluations - and those doing the evaluations themselves.
