      Universities’ Role in Strengthening Communities’ Third Sector

      Universities as an institution are in a unique position to help the efforts of the nonprofit community thrive. LSUS has worked to develop and implement a model that can be replicated by others, small or large, public or private. Through their work, LSUS is conducting research that could be particularly helpful in understanding donors and framing giving campaigns. Our Chapter is in the unique position as we will be the first to see their first draft of their strategic plan and provide our feedback, questions and ideas.  Dr. S. Greg Thompson is the Executive Director of The Institute for Nonprofit Administration & Research (INAR) at Louisiana State University in Shreveport. Dr. Thompson has worked with numerous professional nonprofit associations including the American Cancer Society, the Boy Scouts of America, Court-Appointed Special Advocates for Children, and other smaller grassroots causes, which he helped launch. In addition to his leadership experience in the nonprofit arena, Dr. Thompson served in faculty and administrative roles at the University of Kentucky, Berea College, Lamar University, and McNeese State University. He most recently led nonprofit and family support initiatives in Beaumont-Port Arthur, TX and the surrounding region through collaborations between agencies such as the Southeast Texas Nonprofit Development Center, Family Services of Southeast Texas, and the Better Business Bureau. Dr. Thompson is enthusiastic about the key role INAR has in the state, noting its ability to enhance nonprofits' capacity to thrive Dr. Thompson holds a PhD in Family Studies from the University of Kentucky, and a Master of Science in Human Services from Murray State University. He is married to Teresa Thompson, who is an RN with extensive experience in kidney dialysis nursing. She expects to begin work soon with the Willis-Knighton Medical Center. They have one adult son who resides in the Houston area.
