It started with an idea. It gathered traction with an engaged university/community
partnership. It grew with an unwavering commitment to be the very best. And it flourished with hard work and diligence.
Today, the Helen Bader Institute (HBI) for Nonprofit Management at the University of
Wisconsin-Milwaukee (UWM) is proud to celebrate its 20th anniversary. Established in 2001, the mission of HBI was clear: to improve nonprofit organizations’ leadership and effectiveness through education, research, and community engagement.
With its 20th anniversary, HBI is pleased to present its HBI Impact Report 2022. This publication provides information on the accomplishments, educational programs, research initiatives, and nonprofit community support developed by HBI over the years.
