Strategic Planning for Arts Organizations

Undergraduate degree program application deadline for Spring has been extended to 10/15.

Strategic plans are essential to the long-term health of nonprofit arts and culture organizations, allowing board members and staff to agree on a common direction for the organization to help guide future activity. This course will introduce you to the principles and methods of strategic planning for nonprofit organizations, and will introduce you to various types of plans and planning terms. You will learn an eight-stage system for strategic planning and critique existing plans and design a planning process for your own nonprofit or a case study organization of your choosing.
