This month's topic is program evaluation education.

We are taking this month to introduce you to an educator, evaluator, researcher, and academic who is also The Nonprofit Institute’s Interim Director, Dr. Masami Nishishiba.

The Nonprofit Institute has been preparing for another year of the popular Professional Certificate in Nonprofit Program Evaluation, offered in partnership with WVDO. Dr. Nishishiba has been integral in transitioning the organization into another year. We are fortunate to have her expertise in research and evaluation design available to our institute and to students joining us in 2019-2020 learning opportunities.

We're also excited to share news about a new learning opportunity, The Nonprofit Institute’s Data Learning Center workshop series. We hope you will join us to learn together as a community as we pilot this new program. The pilot workshops are provided free of charge.

Let the resources and insights we share in The Nonprofit Nerd inspire you to get your nerd on and find innovative ways to make research and data work for you and your nonprofit!


The Nonprofit Institute (NPI) is a collaboration with community stakeholders and representatives from PSU’s College of Urban and Public Affairs, College of the Arts, the School of Business’ Impact Entrepreneurs program, and the School of Social Work’s Center to Advance Racial Equity.
