NONPROFIT GOVERNANCE AND ACCOUNTABILITYThe Hauser Center for Nonprofit Organizations and the Harvard Law School are joint sponsors of a five-year, $2 million, University-wide research initiative on nonprofit governance and accountability (G&A). The initiative is funded with generous gifts to the Hauser Center from Gus and Rita Hauser, and to the Harvard Law School by Finn Caspersen.
The project includes two programs: (1) A research fund that supports promising work on governance and accountability by Harvard faculty; as well as (2) A Community of Practice—faculty seminars & symposia—that will develop the intellectual frameworks and faculty collaboration needed to build a coherent body of new knowledge, primarily by organizing interdisciplinary faculty seminars.
This Governance and Accountability website [link: http://isites.harvard.edu/icb/icb.do?keyword=k15549&pageid=icb.page74557] contains information about previously funded projects through the G&A project, symposia proceedings, working papers, and future funding cycles and grant application information.
