Naomi Wish teaches the department's required courses, "Introduction to the Nonprofit Sector" and "Leadership and Management of Nonprofit Organizations. Last year, she began teaching a course comparing the relationship between governments and nonprofit organizations in the U.S. as well as other countries. It is fascinating how different this relationship is in various regions of the world. One of her major interests is the Israel Study Tour, a 3-credit course in which she take students to Israel for two weeks to introduce them to many aspects of the nonprofit sector in Israel and the similarities and differences between the Israeli and American nonprofit sectors. While in Israel, they go down into the desert and visit Beduoins and other populations. They also spend quite a bit of time hearing lectures by both Jewish and Arab Israeli professors.
