People, papers and presentations

Rice University’s Center for Philanthropy and Nonprofit Leadership partnered with the Association of Fundraising Professionals to host a Development and Finance Symposium. The June 11-12 event was sponsored by Sage and CCS Fundraising and held on campus. More than 85 attendees explored the dynamics of collaboration between the finance and development offices at nonprofits and resulted in better-informed and strategic business decisions for their organizations.

STEMScopes, a K-12 online science curriculum developed by Rice’s Center for Digital Learning and Scholarship, is part of the inaugural cohort of education startup partners selected by the State Educational Technology Directors Association. SETDA is the principal nonprofit membership association representing U.S. state and territorial educational technology leaders. State leaders charged with school reform and improvement policies and programs will engage with STEMScopes and other startup partners to stay informed about the latest digital learning innovations. The new Emerging Private Sector Partners will debut at SETDA’s Emerging Technologies Forum June 21 in San Antonio.
