MUSL 650 Governance for Museums and Non-Profit Organizations 3.0 Credits

Most museums in the United States hold their collections in the public trust—meaning that they are accountable to the public as a result of their tax-exempt status. Similarly the non-profit sector exists to serve a social purpose or need that the public sector or government cannot or does not serve. To manage the public trust and represent the interests of the public at large, museums and non-profit organizations have boards of “trustees.” Trustees are community leaders who, in the non-profit sector, serve as volunteers and contribute wealth, wisdom and work to the organization on whose boards they serve. This class will examine the ethical, legal and strategic implications of governance and examine the interactions between boards and museum staff.
