About the Non Profit Sector

Students who participate in CSL are likely to gain more from their placement experiences if they take time to understand the social, economic, and political context of the non-profit sector. We encourage all students and instructors to read a short primer on the Non-Profit Sector before participating in CSL. In some CSL courses, instructors require students to read and respond to this handout and/or other resources as part of their course assignments.
