Nonprofit Boards and Giving Back

Alumni Board ConnectThe Rustandy Center is for business and nonprofit leaders; Booth alumni, students, and faculty; nonprofit board members; and philanthropists—anyone committed to making our world more equitable and sustainable.

Through programs like the On Board conference and Alumni Board Connect, we equip business professionals with the tools and connections to give back. These initiatives also seek to remedy an all-too-common social sector problem: a lack of necessary resources.

“Questions of leadership in the social sector are among the most important that the Rustandy Center will strive to address in the years ahead.”
