Mitchell Terrence 2013On November 19, 2013, ALS PhD student Terrence Mitchell was awarded the Diversity Scholarship Award at the ARNOVA (Association for Research on Nonprofit Organizations and Voluntary Action) conference in Indianapolis, Ind.

His award included a scholarship check plus the opportunity to attend six hours of professional development workshops. The seminars Mitchell attended covered a range of topics especially helpful for scholars with a tenure track interest in nonprofit management. From setting a research agenda to how the recession is impacting nonprofit organizations, Mitchell received a wealth of insights.

The ARNOVA conference also gave him a chance to network with diversity scholars from the United States as well as France, South Korea, Russia, Japan, and China. We asked Mitchell to describe his overall experience at the conference.

“It was a wonderful experience,” Mitchell said. “I was treated so well and given such great information, along with the opportunity to meet numerous nationally renowned scholars. I especially enjoyed meeting the ARNOVA leadership team, including the current president and executive director. I'm so glad Professor Susan Boser of the ALS program told me about ARNOVA and encouraged me to get involved.”

Congratulations Terrence on your Diversity Scholarship Award, and best wishes to you as you press on to complete your PhD in Administration and Leadership Studies!
