Nonprofit Organizations and Social Capital

Features and Uniqueness
  • Nonprofit organizations strive to solve community and social problems and to create new social values. Nonprofit organizations have the role to create citizenship and social capital - trust, norms and networks - in community. Social capital, an invisible and soft capital has increasingly become important to a sustainable management of an organization.
  • We hope to conduct collaborative research with willing corporations and organizations for measuring social capital at community/organizational levels and for making practical proposals on how to create and utilize social capital with viewpoints of partnership with nonprofit organizations and human resource development.
