Last week UW-Whitewater Nonprofit Management faculty Carol Brunt and Ruth Hansen traveled to Amsterdam, the Netherlands to present research papers at the biannual conference of the International Society for Third-Sector Research .

Dr. Brunt’s presentation, Advancing a “People-First” Culture: Human Resource Management in Nonprofit Curricula, assessed the inclusion of human resource management in American nonprofit management education.

Dr. Hansen’s presentation, Unpopular: Examining the Role of Client Stigma in Writing Charitable Appeals, looked at evidence of fundraising practice for different nonprofit client groups.

The conference was hosted by the Philanthropic Studies department of Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, and allowed for discussion among 600 scholars of nonprofits and philanthropy from around the world.  Dr. Brunt and Dr. Hansen joined colleagues in visiting some of Amsterdam’s nonprofits, including the Rijksmuseum, the Van Gogh Museum, and the Anne Frank Museum.

Fun fact: In addition to tulips, the Dutch pride themselves on their cheese making.  One associate at an Henri Willig cheese shop asked us to convey greetings back “to Wisconsin, to our fellow cheeseheads!”
