Developing the Next Generation of Nonprofit Board Leaders
Fox Board Fellows places motivated, innovative and mission-driven graduate degree candidates on nonprofit boards as active and engaged visiting members. Fellows contribute a professional quality, strategic project to their host nonprofit organizations as part of a credit bearing, elective course in Nonprofit Governance.
Partner nonprofit organizations facilitate an engaging and applied learning opportunity for Fellows interested in experiencing board governance in action and applying tools and concepts to real business problems in the nonprofit sector. Through this unique learning engagement partners access the unique perspectives, technical savvy and innovative approaches of skilled professionals while Fellows gain practical insights, knowledge and experience to prepare them for future board service.
