Dr. Noel Mazade (Office of Research and Engagement) received new funding from North Carolina State University for the project “Nonprofit Leadership Fellows Academy.”
The NC State Institute for Nonprofits in partnership with NC Division of Mental Health, Developmental Disabilities and Substance Abuse Services, and UNCG will deliver and evaluate the Leadership Fellows Academy for executive directors, owners, senior staff and/or board chairs of consumer operated nonprofit organizations across the state (“Fellows”) and provide mentorship for program alums. The intent of the Leadership Fellows Academy is to inculcate leadership capacities in individuals, throughout the organizations they lead, and within the communities in which they live and serve.
The UNCG Office of Research and Engagement will provide co-design of the academy. They will deliver several modules both online and face-to-face for the academy and will provide co-design services and facilitation for the planning the Academy.
