Chapter 4: Nonprofit governance and leadership for social impact

Lyn P. Corbett and Colton C. Strawser


Nonprofit organizations that focus on implementing good governance practices are better prepared to lead their organizations through turbulent times and periods of organizational growth. Within nonprofit organizations, the age, size, and environment influence leadership in governance and impact the role of the board as a high functioning team. There is an increasing need to develop the next generation of nonprofit leaders by equipping them with the essential skills to support and develop strong boards and strong communities. Utilizing curricular guidelines from the Nonprofit Academic Centers Council, this chapter provides an overview of teaching nonprofit governance as well as some examples of classroom activities that instructors can implement to assist students in gaining a stronger understanding of the benefits of good governance.
