Last week, Samford University announced a new partnership with the Alabama Association of Nonprofits (formerly the Nonprofit Resource Center of Alabama). The state’s only state-wide membership organization for nonprofits is now housed at the Brock School of Business, and its important work to support the work of nonprofits across the state is now integrated into the Brock School’s program in social entrepreneurship, under the direction of Dr. Jeremy Thornton. Other academic programs at Samford will soon have the opportunity to work with the Association as well. Our faculty and students will have direct access to this important and growing sector of our economy, and most importantly, our people will use their time and talents to serve the people of Alabama in new and exciting ways.
The world is better because of Samford’s support of Alabama’s nonprofit organizations.
