What a Nonprofit Learns About Building University Partnerships

In Chapter 19 of 20 in her 2013 Capture Your Flag interview, social entrepreneur Courtney Spence answers "How Has Your Nonprofit Built Relationships With Universities and How is This Changing?" Experience teaches Spence to appreciate every university is different - from students to culture to community. When looking at a college campus partnership opportunity, Spence and her team focus on students first, then administration, then alumni as they scale university relationships. Social entrepreneur and storyteller Courtney Spence founded 501c3 nonprofit Students of the World (SOW) to shine a light on progress and celebrate the world's problem solvers. She is building a movement of next-generation storytellers and creative activists through the SOW program The Creative Activist Network. Spence is a graduate of Duke University.
