Colloquia & Events

The Nelson Chair strives to bring Community Based Organizations and Out-of-School Time (OST) programs together in communities across the U.S and around the world. Whether we are hosting on the Boston College campus or facilitating the Roundtable model in a new community, we seek to build upon the rich knowledge and capacities of organizations through promoting the sharing of inter-organizational information, best practices in leadership and organizational effectiveness. Through the facilitation of special colloquia, the Nelson Chair is able to build upon existing university-community partnerships by inviting seasoned program leaders to present on themes critical to the growth and sustainability of community programs.
