About 295 colleges and universities offer some type of training in the field - up from 19 in 1990, says Stuart Mendel, assistant dean of the Maxine Goodman Levin College of Urban Affairs and director of the Center for Nonprofit Policy and Practice at Cleveland State University. Mendel also is president-elect of the Nonprofit Academic Centers Council, which is headquartered at Cleveland State and links 45 member institutions dedicated to promoting research and education in the nonprofit and philanthropy sectors.
But how that's taught can differ in schools of business, social work or public policy because the definition also differs in the for-profit, nonprofit and philanthropy worlds, says Mendel.
"Nonprofits will look at social enterprise, and they'll think it's their mission. The mission of a nonprofit is to fill a gap in society or to provide some need," Mendel says. "Foundations and philanthropy feel they're social innovators."
Alternatively, he says, for-profit business will implement programs to shrink their environmental footprint or perform community service.

A powerful personal experience such as Ms. Clarke's often is the seed from which entrepreneurs grow nonprofit organizations, said Stuart Mendel, co-director of the Center for Nonprofit Policy and Practice at the Maxine Goodman Levin College of Urban Affairs at Cleveland State University.
For many who harness the passion and drive to found nonprofits, the cause ultimately becomes their life's work, Dr. Mendel said.
"If you have a choice of starting a nonprofit and starting a business, it's far, far easier to start a business," said Dr. Mendel, whose center was founded to support and foster the health of the nonprofit sector in Cleveland.
"You've got to persuade board members to buy into your vision, help you do work, create resources, donate their time, and that's before you even deliver a product," Dr. Mendel said.
In the end, nonprofits are judged by a different standard than the average business, Dr. Mendel said.
"In terms of what a nonprofit does, it provides a service to a community that is not being provided," he said.
