The Rustandy Center believes that nonprofits—and their boards of directors—have the potential to drive social and environmental change.

That’s why we encourage Booth alumni and students to serve on boards and gain experience in the field. Through resources, programs, and events, the center fosters connections across sectors and shares tools from research and practice to help nonprofit organizations do their best work.
