企画書・概要 (Abstract of Project Proposal)


Given the rise of nonprofit and philanthropic organizations across the globe, there is an increasing demand to train and educate leaders for this emerging sector. In need are leaders with ability to suggest innovative solutions to social issues and to create new values for the society. This project sheds light on nonprofit management and philanthropic sector (NMPS) programs that have rapidly increased around the world in response to such needs. Despite ongoing effort to systematically understand these programs offered in higher education institutions in the United States, little is known about the situations in East Asia. This project aims to fill in this gap with three research tasks. First, the project develops an original database of NMPS programs offered in Japan, South Korea, and China. The database will be made public to assist those searching for places to receive nonprofit education. Second, we explore similarities and dissimilarities in NMPS curricula across countries through East-West comparison and within East Asia. Third, we address the ongoing debate on desirable academic disciplines in educating nonprofit leaders. The project will not only encourage discussions on design and provision of NMPS programs worldwide, but also contribute to enhancing these educational opportunities particularly in East Asia.
