I. Rationale
Since the program was implemented in 2007, through advising we saw that all students enrolled into this
minor want to get either into program or organization administration and/or start nonprofit organizations.
To better help students develop the skills needed to manage programs and organizations, without changing
the essence and the mission of the program, we are:
• moving PLSC 435 Nonprofit Leadership and Management among the required courses.
• placing PLSC 436 Fundraising for Nonprofits as an option among the core elective courses
• placing PLSC 434 Nonprofit Board Development among the core required courses.
• making it clear that PLSC480 Practical Application in Public Administration is a required course
PLSC 435 Nonprofit Leadership and Management is the only course in the program that provides a holistic
and comprehensive understanding of all managerial and leadership components of a nonprofit organization
(i.e. the role of board, executive director, program management, financial management, fundraising) and how
they connect with each other. Hence, we found that it is very important to students to take it before applying
for jobs in the sector.
In addition, we also saw through advising that the fundraising profession is the fastest growing job segment
in the nonprofit sector. Hence, we are making PLSC 436 Fundraising for Nonprofits as an option among the
core elective courses. With the increasing number of students interested in creating their own organization,
we also see fit to move PLSC 434 Nonprofit Board Development among the core required courses. Board
work is still not well understood by those working in the nonprofit sector, and by making this course an
option among the core courses we are letting students understand the importance of knowing about the
workings of Boards of Directors.
The final change that we are making is to make it clear that the Field Seminar, PLSC 480, is a required
course. The internship allows students to apply and practice what they learned in the other classes.

Program Revision Guidelines
IV. Impact.
The program is not changing its mission of preparing students for working in the
nonprofit sector. The purpose of re-structuring the minor is to allow students to better
understand the skills needed to work in the nonprofit sector and which classes they need
to take to acquire these skills.
These changes will better prepare students for administrative or managerial positions in
the nonprofit sector. It will also provide a better understanding of the work of the
nonprofit sector to students, particularly to those who have an entrepreneurial spirit and
plan on creating their own nonprofit organization. They will also allow those students
who self-advice to take the classes they needed to succeed in the nonprofit world.
V. Budget. No budget is required.

Include information about major/minor requirements, restricted and general electives, and the minimum number of total credit
