The RGK Center is pleased to welcome Mike King, President and CEO of Volunteers of America, as a visiting faculty member. In fall 2013, King will teach Innovations and Trends in the Nonprofit Sector, a course offered through RGK’s Portfolio Program in Nonprofit Studies. According to Dr. Sarah Jane Rehnborg, RGK’s Interim Director, the course is focused on the intersection of policy and practice at a critical juncture in nonprofit history. Students will examine successful innovations within the sector, emerging trends, and strategic change in response to potential tax reform and funding stream shifts in healthcare, education, house, and senior care.
King served as CEO of Volunteers of America Texas before becoming head of the national organization. He has more than 35 years’ experience working as a leader in the nonprofit sector. He previously held executive positions with United Way of Metropolitan Dallas, the Volunteer Center of Dallas, ChildCareGroup and Volunteer–The National Center. King has served as a facilitator of leadership training for Hewlett Packard and has also served on the faculty of both the University of Colorado and the Institute for Advanced Volunteer Management in the United Kingdom.
