Applied Projects Organizational Impact Report
The Caster Family Center for Nonprofit Research, along with the SOLES Director of Assessment Support conducted an evaluation of the applied projects portion of the Nonprofit Leadership and Management Masters Program. This study determined whether student-led projects had an impact on the nonprofit organizations for which they were developed and assessed the type and duration of that impact.
Products are created by our graduate students through our Technical Assistance Resources Program.
