TRANSLATING A PASSION FOR CIVIC ENGAGEMENT INTO A CAREER IN PUBLIC AFFAIRS

Event presented by: Baruch College, School of Public Affairs,
Office of Academic Programs and the Center for Nonprofit Strategy and Management

Amidst the challenges of college requirements, costs, and social pressures to pre-select career paths, high school students are often left little time to explore their passions. There is a desire to help others and to make a civic difference, but how?

In a roundtable discussion lead by the Associate Dean of Baruch College’s School of Public Affairs, community organizations in New York will explore the role of civic engagement and nonprofit leadership in New York City’s college readiness programs. Organizations will have an opportunity to discuss how to cultivate an interest in public service and to connect students to careers through a public affairs degree, such as Baruch’s Bachelor of Science in Public Affairs (BSPA). As integral players, CUNY and Baruch departments will be represented to provide a university perspective.

NEW COMMUNICATION STRATEGIES FOR NONPROFITS

Nonprofits stand little chance of receiving funding, having their voices heard, and creating impacts with the communities they serve without excellent communication strategies.

In 1993, the Campaign for Fiscal Equity (CFE) filed a suit against the state of New York alleging that inadequate funding for New York City schools denied students their constitutional right to a sound basic education. In 2006, the Court of Appeals mandated an increase in funding for New York City schools. The years in between saw a slew of court decisions, missed deadlines, appeals, and perhaps most importantly, a statewide advocacy movement that kept the issue of public education funding on the minds of residents and on the front pages of the newspapers. Now, the fiscal crisis is presenting new challenges. In this seminar, key advocacy leaders will talk about their continuing work on public education funding.

The seminar will also serve as the official launch of the New York City Nonprofit Advocacy Case Studies; three multimedia cases and a background paper that analyze landmark attempts by nonprofit organizations to drive policy changes on key issues in New York City.
