Nonprofit organizations have a considerable impact on our economy and society. The nonprofit sector is estimated to contribute approximately 10 percent of the workforce and over 9 percent of the wages and salaries in the United States.1 It also contributes an estimated $878 billion to the U.S. economy or about 5.4 percent of the GDP.2
The College of Business and Economics has been recognized by peers in two leading organizations in the nonprofit sector. We are pleased to announce our Faculty affiliation to the Helen Bader Institute for Nonprofit Management at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, whose mission is to improve the leadership and effectiveness of nonprofit organizations through education, research and service. We are excited to be participating in their Colloquium Series. We are also members of the Nonprofit Academic Centers Council, an international association of academic programs in nonprofit studies. We look forward to collaborating with our colleagues as we continue to develop our nonprofit program.
