Symposia for Nonprofit Leaders to Address Rutgers-UMDNJ Integration, Collaborations, April 8
Nonprofit leaders and decision-makers are invited to a one-day, two-part Statewide Symposia on the Nonprofit Sector of New Jersey at Rutgers on Monday, April 8, to learn about two important topics facing the state: the Rutgers University and UMDNJ Integration and opportunities for meaningful collaborations within the state’s nonprofit sector.
Presented by the Center for Nonprofit Management and Governance, a unit of the Rutgers School of Social Work, the event will take place at the Cook Campus Center, 59 Biel Road, New Brunswick, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Integration of Rutgers with UMDNJ will impact not only the Rutgers and UMDNJ communities, but also the surrounding areas and New Jersey as a whole. The symposia will provide social work decision-makers and leaders with information regarding the process, details, and what to expect in terms of this integration and its effects. This symposia is open to Rutgers and UMDNJ faculty and staff, as well.
As collaborations and partnerships within the social welfare field develop, it is increasingly important that these communities continue to work together to provide services to clients while maintaining prosperous businesses and work places. Through panel discussions and keynote speakers, the symposia will offer ideas and strategies for developing meaningful collaborations.
“The Statewide Symposia are immensely important for nonprofit organizations seeking knowledge about the Rutgers-UMDNJ integration. In these complex economic times, nonprofit organizations are seeking new collaborations and partnerships,” said Dr. Ronald Quincy, director of the Center for Nonprofit Management and Governance.
Dr. Christopher Molloy, Rutgers Interim Provost of Biomedical and Health Sciences, who leads the Integration Management Office, will be the featured speaker at the morning symposium on “The Joint Rutgers and University of Medicine & Dentistry of New Jersey Integration: Opportunities for Collaborations with the New Jersey Nonprofit Sector."
Jim Padilla, former president and CEO of Ford Motor Company will be the luncheon speaker on the topic, "Leadership during Organizational Change: Opportunities and Challenges.”
The afternoon symposium is entitled "Positioning Your Nonprofit Organization for Success in a Rapidly Evolving Marketplace: Alliances, Partnerships, Collaborations and Cooperative Agreements.”
The cost for the event is $100, if registering prior to February 28, and $125 after that date. Six social work continuing education hours are available for an additional $20.00 on the day of the event, payable by check only, made out to Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey.
