New Nonprofit Leadership Program Spotlighted at OCU Luncheon
OKLAHOMA CITY – Oklahoma City University will host a luncheon next month to spotlight a new master’s program in applied sociology in nonprofit leadership. Leaders of local nonprofit organizations and prospective students are invited to attend the free lunch from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. May 12 at the Tom and Brenda McDaniel University Center. United Way of Central Oklahoma President Bob Spinks will join OCU in January to lead the new program. “I’m really looking forward to this program,” Spinks said. “OCU is the perfect place for it.” The nonprofit leadership degree is designed to prepare students for a lifelong career of helping others. Taught by practitioners who are experienced and successful in nonprofit leadership, the fast-track program gives students the skills they need for a successful future in nonprofit leadership. Jody Horn, chair of the sociology department at Oklahoma City University, said the number of nonprofit organizations in the region has grown by more than 20 percent in the last 10 years. Horn explained that the need for services from these organizations is vital. For more information or to RSVP for the luncheon, call (405) 208-5093.
