Thursday, June 1, 2017  –  Leadership Challenges in the Nonprofit Sector
Richard M. Clerkin, Ph.D., Executive Director of the Institute for Nonprofits at NC State University

Five leadership challenges ground NC State’s undergraduate minor in nonprofit studies and guides the work of the Institute for Nonprofits. What these five challenges have in common is they are all adaptive challenges. You cannot google them and find crisp clear answers. You can have many experts weigh in on them, but there will be myriad perspectives on each challenge. Successfully engaging these challenges requires artful adaptive leadership if nonprofits are going to work towards accomplishing their missions.

Richard M. Clerkin, Ph.D., is the executive director of the Institute for Nonprofits at NC State University where he leads a team of professional staff and students to be a community where ideas, resources, and support are devoted to strengthening the capacity of nonprofit and social sector organizations in NC and beyond. He serves an Associate Professor in the Department of Public Administration at NC State University. He teaches classes in public administration and nonprofit studies at the undergraduate, masters, and doctoral levels. His research interest focuses broadly on understanding why people voluntarily contribute to the common good. His research has been published in various peer-review and professional journals.
