Apply to the Nonprofit Board Residency Program

Would you like to work in the nonprofit world after graduation?

During the 2015-2016 school year, Wesleyan students in the new Nonprofit Board Residency Program will gain special insight into the inner workings of  nonprofits by working closely with a local board of directors, that is, the group of elected or appointed volunteers who help govern and guide an organization.

Each student will attend board meetings, actively participate in a committee, and complete an independent project.  Participants will also meet on campus for group discussions on the nonprofit sector, Boards of Directors, reflections on their experiences, and more.

Students will receive .25 credits per semester and must be willing to commit to the entire academic year. Applications are due Tuesday, May 12.
