MA in Nonprofit Management Program Visits LAMusArt

Group of students, Listening Attentively in the CourtyardTwo current MA in Nonprofit Management (MANM) student cohorts visited the LA Music and Art School (LAMusArt) on November 4, 2017. Executive Director Manny Prieto, who is a MANM alumnus, provided a tour for the Vision and Luminous cohorts. He designed the tour in order to discuss the organization through the lens of the MANM curriculum.

Manny Prieto is the fourth alumnus to host a site visit for the MANM program and it is a wonderful tradition that seems to be forming,” said MANM Teaching Faculty David Norgard. “These alumni combine their learning from the degree with their professional experience and share that greater wisdom with currents students.

Besides hearing from Manny and Armando, students viewed young ballerinas stretching, painters painting, and overheard pianists and other instrumentalists rehearsing.
