Dr. David Berlan is an assistant professor at the Askew School. He teaches in the areas of nonprofit management and public and nonprofit financial management. His research examines the role of competing ideas in the change and evolution of nonprofit organizations and the networks in which they participate. Most of this research is in the context of global health and development, though he also seeks to tie his teaching and research into the local nonprofit community.
