Angela Eikenberry to Lead the Association for Research on Nonprofit Organizations and Voluntary Actions

Angela Eikenberry, the David C. Scott Diamond Alumni Professor of Public Affairs in the School of Public Administration at the University of Nebraska at Omaha, has been chosen as president-elect of the Association for Research on Nonprofit Organizations and Voluntary Actions. Founded in 1971, the organization connects scholars, teachers, and practice leaders interested in research on nonprofit organizations, voluntary action, philanthropy and civil society.

In accepting this leadership role, Professor Eikenberry stated that “ARNOVA has played an especially valuable role in our field by supporting emerging and diverse scholars and scholarship, providing high quality venues for research presentations and publications, and growing interdisciplinary and international partnerships. As president, I will do all I can to support expanding these efforts and continuing to keep ARNOVA welcoming and inclusive.”

Dr. Eikenberry is the author of Giving Circles: Philanthropy, Voluntary Association, Democracy (Indiana University Press, 2009). She holds a bachelor’s degree in international studies, a master’s degree in nonprofit management, and a Ph.D. in public administration, all from the University of Nebraska, Omaha.
