Headed by Professor Derek Bok (the former president of Harvard University), the Hauser Center for Nonprofit Organizations was launched in 1997 with a mission "to expand understanding and accelerate critical thinking about civil society among scholars, practitioners, policy makers, and the general public." As part of working towards achieving this goal, the Hauser Center's Web site contains information about ongoing research projects, events sponsored under its direction, and publications conducted under the auspices of the Center. Visitors will want to examine the research section, as they will find valuable information on the Center's current work, which ranges from work in the nonprofit sector, as well as public policy, philanthropy and social investing. The Hauser Center Working Paper Series is also available here, reaching back to the year 2000, and addressing such topics as The Role of NGOs in Human Security and Social Entrepreneurship and Social Transformation.
