Course Description

This is the first semester of a two semester course sequence. Students must successfully complete FIN 375/FIN 376 in order to earn credit towards graduation. The goal of this two semester course is to provide students with the opportunity to gain exposure to the type of decisions made by nonprofit boards of directors. This involves membership on a board of directors as well as hands-on experience as a member of a subcommittee of the board. During the first semester students will attend board meetings and become oriented to the organization.
